Installing Windows XP on SATA hard drive
    #4032546 - 04/08/05 11:20 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Um yeah, this is proving to be a pain in the nuts. Here's the specs.... Had XP home and I'm installing XP Pro. I think a pertinent piece of info is that it has a USB floppy (more to come on this..) Anyway, I booted from the XP Pro CD, pressed F6 when it asked if I wanted to use any 3rd party SCSI or RAID drivers, pointed to the driver for the SATA, and Windows went about it's business. So once it finished running the setup, it asks for the driver to be put in the A: drive and to press enter. I do this and nothing happens... Is this because it's lacking usb support at that point? It's stressing me out tho..

I'm also in the middle of a PS2 mod, and getting that thing reassembled is a nightmare in itself...

Thanks in advance

I believe if you create an XP CD with SP1 it will allow you to load drivers right off the CD. Heres a link http://www.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp1_cd.htm

Btw love your sig

Thanks man...

I think the real issue here is the SATA hard drive, and as soon as the formatting is complete it asks again for the "intel application accelerator driver" from the A: drive. It sucks tho, because prior to the formatting of C: it was able to read them fine. Is there anyway to gain USB support at this point?

Just found somethin:

# Check to make certain that Floppy Controller is disabled in the BIOS Setup program
# Check to make certain that Legacy USB is enabled in the BIOS Setup program

Incase anyone cares how I did this... I swapped in a regular floppy for the windows installation, then put the USB back in upon completion....
