I was just looking at Nlite. I thought about the sp2 but not the SATA driver. By Sata driver you mean for the actual drive or mobo driver?
BTW, is this common with SP1 installs on a new system? I realize XP is getting some age on it particularly SP1.
Do you think Nlite will do the trick? What is a good Nlite guide? The ones on their site?
