Instructions for creating a slipstream CD using NLite can be found here.

XPCREATE is another utility program that helps create a Windows OS installation CD with both hotfixes and drivers slipstreamed.

With both utilities, you will actually have to provide the drivers yourself for slipstreaming, either in .inf or .exe format. You should be able to get them from either HP or directly from the hard drive manufacturer.

I can't install xp on pre vista installed laptop

After the death of Windows XP, almost all notebook PCs come with Windows Vista pre-installed. But if you like Windows XP more than Windows Vista then a simple Windows XP wouldn't suffice for installing it on your notebook PC. If you BIOS has an option to change your hard disk mode from SATA to IDE then you can just pop in the good old Windows XP CD and get it set up within minutes. But if it doesn't, then you have to do it the other way as mentioned below.

You will just be requiring the Windows XP CD and a few softwares and stuff that I will tell you as we go along. You might ask just why wouldn't a normal XP CD do the task? The answer is pretty simple. The original Windows XP CD does not have SATA drivers so it can't detect your hard drive during the installation process. The solution is simpler. Just slipstream them into the CD! So lets begin.

Step 1 : Download and install nLite

This is an amazing software that lets you tweak and hack your XP CD to the core with an extremely easy to use UI. Download and install the software .

Step 2 : Download SATA drivers

You need to get your hands on the SATA drivers next, that you will need to slipstream into the CD. Although there are different version based on your motherboard that you can search them on Intel website or download the standard ones , which work with most of the motherboards. After downloading extract the driver and remember the location.

Step 3 : Insert XP CD and start nLite

Now that you successfully have the tools and utilities, we can get down with the real stuff. Launch nLite after inserting Windows XP CD into the drive. Choose to make an image of Windows XP in a directory of your choice. Click next and proceed to skip import or load previous settings step by clicking next and proceed to next step.

Step 4 : Add the SATA driver

On the next page, you will find a "Drivers" tab. Click on it and also check the bootable ISO option and then click on next. Click on the button at the bottom to insert the driver. Give the location to the folder where you extracted the SATA driver. You will find a couple of inf files, select any one of them. Now select the all the driver files. That is it, click Next.

Step 5 : Burn the ISO

You will now be asked for confirmation, select yes and let nLite integrate the driver and create a bootable image. Burn it on a CD by just hitting the Burn button at the bottom and you will be ready to install Windows XP on your laptop!

Just boot from XP CD - pressing F12 should give you the option in Bios, allowing you to boot from CD when all is completed. Some PCs still need sata/scsi drivers loaded by pressing F6 in the install. If all fails read original manual that came with Dell 6400. If lost you should be able to download from dell support, using express service tag.

Your XP CD should be bootable to begin with.

If the problem is that it is not bootable or that you have a SATA drive and require the SATA drivers for install - you should download a copy of nlite from

Using this point it at your windows xp install files - you can create a bootable CD image to burn or you can slipstream in your SATA drivers so that the install can be done via disc.

Have windows vista and wanting to install xp

Installing Windows XP on a SATA Drive
Author: DJ Oslo
Date: August 18, 2007
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 (
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
The following link is to the SATA drivers that will work with the Toshiba X205-S9349.
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
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
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
