This is Bug of manufacturer. I have meet it too much time. You should download SATA drivers, and write them to floppy. Then when installing XP press F6, to load Sata Raid Drivers. But it not works sometimes. The "Best way" is to install XP on IDE slot HDD. And then clone it to Sata drive using Acronis software.

SATA hard drives have become more and more appreciated tending to substitute the IDE drives due to the increasing speed they offer. Motherboard manufacturers started to implement the new standard years ago, when the technology was young and expensive. Now, as the SATA HDD prices have lowered to a level where anybody can afford to choose a SATA enabled HDD instead of an IDE one, a great migration has been observed among the common computer users.

They choose to install Windows and applications on SATA drives because they provide more speed which determines the system to run smoother. Thus, for those owning older mainboards with SATA support an extra step is required while attempting to install Windows XP. Windows XP does not provide drivers for all the SATA controllers, therefore, during the installation procedure, the user must insert a floppy with the drivers that came in the package along with the motherboard.

Not a big deal, not much effort, but the funny thing is that a great number of people passed on their floppy drives. Under these circumstances, no floppy means the impossibility to install Windows XP on SATA (on some mainboards). The result? The installation guide simply won't detect the SATA HDD.

People that were happy they got rid of the old removable drive have now motives to worry. Some may reconsider buying new floppy drives for their computers. Even if I wrote in a precedent article about the utility of the floppy drive, I do not encourage spending your money buying back an obsolete piece of hardware. I will present you a method to avoid this inconvenient by doing a software trick.

Let's take it slow. Where is the problem? We have a driver problem strictly because the SATA driver we need does not come embedded in the Windows XP installation package. What if we add the driver by ourselves before installing Windows?

What ingredients are involved in this operation? The original Windows XP Installation CD, a freeware application named NLite and a blank CD. Moreover, we need the drivers for the SATA controller provided by the manufacturer. In case you did not find any floppy inside the motherboard package or you cannot locate them on the mainboard
installation CD, you can consult the manufacturer's website to download the latest versions. To do the trick I have been talking about, it is assumed that you already have a Windows installed on an IDE drive. In case you don't, pay a visit to a friend and ask him to let you use his computer. It won't take too much time, I guarantee.

So, download the drivers and unzip them (in case they come archived) in a desired location. Then download and install the Nlite application. When you start the Nlite application, you will be asked to provide the location for the Windows installation package. Insert the genuine Windows Installation CD into the CD drive and, inside the application, select the CD drive letter.

To insert the SATA drivers within the installation package, you need to have it saved on the HDD. Hence, when the warning window appears click OK and select the destination folder for the files to be saved. Make sure that the destination partition / HDD has enough space to store the contents of the installation CD.

I tested a Windows XP Home Edition and it seems that it required about 566 MB. Immediately after you have chosen the destination folder, the application will start copying the Windows installation files. When finished, it will display some version information regarding the newly copied Windows Installation Package.

Now, click next twice until you get to a screen where you get options sorted in 4 categories: Integrate, Remove, Setup, Create. We are interested in the integration procedure, therefore select the Drivers button and click next. From the next menu window, click Insert and select multiple drive folder option from the drop down menu. This option permits you to browse to the location where the downloaded drivers are found.

Select the containing directory and click next. You will get a list with the available drivers (in case there are more than one) or simply one driver. Select it (them) and click next. Now the application will ask for the permission to start the integration procedure. Choose Yes and wait for the drivers to be inserted into the installation package.

With problematic driver being included in the installation package you can install Windows XP on your SATA HDD...but...the installation package is on the HDD. You need a bootable CD in order to start an installation. Don't worry, once the installation package has been adorned with additional user selected drivers it can be transformed into a bootable disk image and later burned on a CD. To encapsulate the installation into a ISO image use the same Nlite application.

Open it, make sure the HDD installation folder is selected and click next. Select "Last session" preset and click next again. Now from the options menu choose Bootable ISO and click next. In the following window, make sure that the mode is set to "Create Image" and click Make ISO. A destination folder is required where the resulting ISO image will be saved. Once the image saving process finished you have the freedom to burn it on a blank CD with whatever you favorite CD burner software may be.
Review image Review image


The new CD will be the twin copy of the Windows Installation CD but with one difference, it includes the SATA driver.

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP


Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.

Have windows vista and wanting to install xp


Installing Windows XP on a SATA Drive
Author: DJ Oslo
Date: August 18, 2007
Description:
This tutorial will describe step by step how to install XP on a laptop with a SATA hard
drive in order to downgrade the operating system from Vista to Windows XP SP2. The
laptop model that this tutorial is based on is listed below:
Model: Toshiba X205-S9349
In order to install XP, you will need the following software:
Windows XP SP Installation CD
nLite (http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/nLite.shtml)
Introduction:
If you want to downgrade to XP from Vista you may run into a problem during the boot
stage of XP Installation. The problem I encountered was a message that read:
“Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer”
The problem is that XP does not provide the necessary drivers for the SATA controllers
and as a result it won't detect the SATA hard drive. You could use an external floppy
disk drive but that might not guarantee success.
What has been suggested is that you perform a procedure called "Slipstreaming".
Slipstreaming is the procedure where you create a new build of the XP installation files
and "merge" the drivers you need for the SATA controllers. You would then use this
new build to install XP onto your system.
Note: These procedures were performed on my Toshiba P105 laptop, which is my current
working laptop.
Step 1.
Create a directory under My
Documents where you will
copy the contents of your
XP installation CD.
Step 2.
Download the SATA driver that you will need in order to “Slipstream” into your XP
installation.
The following link is to the SATA drivers that will work with the Toshiba X205-S9349.
http://209.167.114.38/support/Download/files_Downloads/pspb7c/Intel-Matrix-Storage-Manager-V1.0.0.1082.zip
Step 3.
When you download the .zip file,
unpack the contents in a new
directory under My Documents.
Step 4.
Open nLite and locate the
directory where you copied
the XP installation files to.
Click on the Next button.
Step 5.
You will get information on the
Product. Click on the next button.
Step 6.
Click on the Next button
Step 7.
In the Task Selection, you will click on
the button called Drivers and Bootable
ISO. After you click on each button the
red dot will turn green. What this means
is that you will “integrate” drivers into
the installation and then create a bootable
ISO file.
Click on the next button.
Step 8.
Step 9.
Click on the Insert – Multiple driver
folder option to select the drivers that
you will integrate.
Locate the folder where you
unzipped the SATA drivers.
Highlight the folder and click OK.
Step 10.
The following drivers will be listed.
Note: you must select the correct driver to
integrate or else you may experience errors
during the installation phase of XP.
Select the first driver.
Click on the OK button.
Step 11.
Select all the items to
integrate. Click on the OK
button.
Step 12.
Step 13.
Highlight all the drivers and click on
the Next button.
Select Yes to start the process.
Step 14.
nLite will now apply the changes
to the installation files.
Step 15.
When complete, it will display how
much the installation grew. Click on
the Next button.
Step 16.
In the Bootable ISO section, click on
Make ISO.
Step 17.
Step 18.
You will be prompted to save
the ISO file. Select where you
want to save it and click on the
Save button.
nLite begins the process of
creating the .ISO file that can
then be burned to CD and used
as the installation file for
Windows XP.
Step 19.
You should get a message
that the ISO file has been
created successfully. Click
on the Next button.
Step 20.
Step 21.
Open your CD burning software. In this example I will use Nero Burning ROM.
Customization is finished.
Click on the Finish button.
In the menu bar, I select Recorder – Burn
Image…
Step 22.
Step 23.
I locate the ISO file that I created in
nLite. Highlight the file and click on
the Open button.
Click on the Burn button. This will now
burn the ISO to CD and thus create your
new XP installation that will install the
SATA drivers during the boot stage of XP
installation. this is 100% working thank very much
