    Do you mean SATA HDD support? Most SATA stuff is supported out of the box with XP. Can you be a little more specific as to what you wish to do and what you want your end result to be?

I cannot connect SATA HDD


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I have HP Comaq Presario SR1617CL Desktop PC, part number ED870AA with a Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N - hard drive - 160 GB - ATA-133, I would like to upgrade to a 500GB hard drive. I have a ASUS A8AE-LE...


XP cannot be installed natively on an SATA disk without the appropriate driver which must be loaded during the install - an extremely complicated maneuver. The best way to deal with that is to just add the new SATA hard disk: install XP on the PATA and use the new SATA for your files as a separate partition. The adapter cable can be bought for about $5 from the same shop as the hdd.
All the other modifications are just fine - just remember , the RAM will not be fully recognized and used because of the limitations of the 32bit XP.

I have a gateway LT serires netbook, which i delete a partition on. i accidently deleted windows xp, and now it wont boot. how can i fix this with a flash drive/sd card


Yes it can be done, just follow this
http://www.vandomburg.net/installing-windows-xp-from-usb/
But since your hard disk is a SATA  and XP doesn't support it out of the box you will need to also add to the install stick the correct SATA driver. And since you are doing that you should add all the other drivers.

Intalling window xp over vista


XP does not include SATA drivers in the distribution. You need to get the SATA drivers for your particular model from HP's website and watch for the prompt to hit F6 when prompted to install SATA or RAID drivers.

The trick is that the mechanism to add these drivers at this point assumes that you have a floppy drive which is rare these days. There are a number of work-arounds for this, here is one:

I have a sata hdd and i want to install winxp sp2 and now during partition message display how can i solve it..????


I have experenced this before. Its because the XP install you have does not have sata drivers compatable with your drive. Two possibilities.
1. sometimes with the BIOS you can change the Sata settings so that XP can see it during setup.
2. Download the sata controller drivers and during the setup. it prompts you to add extra drives with F6.
