A205-S5804 Can't find SATA drivers for Vista to XP "downgrade"

I'm feeling like such a newb right now, but I'm unable to find the proper drivers to allow XP to install it's self onto this laptop, once I get past this I believe I'll be fine. FWIW, I'm going to be slip-streaming the drivers into an install, I just need to pinpoint where I can download these drivers. Thanks for your time.

    Did you actually look up the A205-S5804? They don't list the SATA drivers at all, a bunch of other stuff I'll need later on... but NO SATA/Raid drivers. :(

  • god910 Feb 01, 2008

    Gotcha, I *ultimately* found what I need, but it's in an .exe form (The Intel Matrix Storage Manager) and I can't just extract the files I need for the slip stream. I'll look at the other files that you suggested and see if I can strip out a .inf or .ini or whatever it happens to be.

I had this same problem with a A205-S5867 model laptop. You might be able to use the same driver that I used. The link to download the driver is here: http://jasonross.name/files/A205-S5867_SATARAID.zip.

You will need to extract the files onto a floppy disk.

Well for the F6 install I slipstreamed the ICH8M-E/M SATA AHCI intel driver with nlite as a text mode driver. I had problems with using the floppyso I need to slipstream it. I believe I downloaded the GM965 Intel Matrix Storage Driver. There were no problems.

You can do what I did to make it simeple buy a 15.00 floppy drive on Ebay ( tosiba usb external ). Then extract the files on to the floppy drive and boot the computer with xp disc. Press F6 to load the sata driver and it will work fine. or you can go the slipstream route, but you still have to extract the files on to a floppy drive then put the files on to a PC and then use nlite...Too much work for me so i did the floppy drive method.

Good luck

Actually, you can just get the files needed from the .exe without actually installing (like if you are installing from a second PC that doesn't match the hardware). You would double click the exe, let it open, then navigate to C:\Windows\Temp. I'm not exactly sure which folder it is in there, but if you empty the temp directory before doing this, it is easy to find.

I didn't lookup the specific drivers
but the chipset drivers will include the ata drivers within it.
they may also call it the mother board drivers.

Downgrading a SatelliteA205-S5804 To XP Pro


Well, It looks like you might be approaching the problem from a driver side. Try approaching from the BIOS side. If possible, enter the BIOS and set your notebook's SATA setting to "ATA" or "Legacy" (especially if you are not doing any complex raid functions on the notebook). ATA or Legacy will allow easy access to the drive by making windows think its an old fashioned EIDE drive, and windows will have native drivers for it already. Good Luck :)

Download the 8187b drivers from Realtek's site. You then need to go in and edit the .inf file to read like this:

;;****************************************************************************
;; IDs for 98SE/ME/2K/XP
;;****************************************************************************
[Realtek]
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8197&REV_0200
%RTL8187B.DeviceDesc% = RTL8187B.ndi, USB\VID_0BDA&PID_8189&REV_0200

After the edit, install as usual from the device manager.
