How to create floppy with SATA drivers (NO mobo CD)

I need to install Windows XP SP2 on my computer(Desktop) and I'm using a SATA drive. The problem is that my computer doesn't recognise the drive. Ok. I have to install the drivers for my motherboard to recognise the drive. From what I read on the internet I have to use Belarc Advisor to see what type is my motherboard to know where to find the drivers. Then I need to create a floppy disk with those drivers. And press F6 at the installation of windows. The problem is I don't have the motherboard CD. So....how do I create the floppy? (I read that it has to contain some makedisk.exe which I don't know where to find).
I keep trying to solve this for 2 weeks. Please help.

Don't need to use a floppy - copy the files to a USB Flash drive, and when the Windows asks for the source, select the drive.

I have an asus p5rd1-vm motherboard. I found problems on installing windows xp using sata hdd. Please help me to install windows xp2 as i am not using floppy drive.


The Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver. You need a SATA driver of a floppy disk or turn off SATA native driver in the BIOS.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to Install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-

I suggest you install SP3 (service pack 3) rather than SP2, it contains the latest bug fixes. The SP3 cannot be installed from a floppy, it can be downloaded from Microsoft, it is a large file approx 300Mb, I suggest you install it from a CD if you can borrow one.

Check whether you have installed the SATA Hard Drive driver using a Floppy disk. Some Computers needs SATA Hard Drive Driver before installing the Windows XP. Try using Windows XP SP2 disk.

I have a Toshiba Tecra S3 laptop with a standard Toshiba SATA hard drive (MK6032GSX rv. AS311G). It was a corporate hand me down. It is in dire need of a re-format due to age and virus but when I try it...


Windows XP does not have the SATA driver on the install CD.
You need to download the SATA driver for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support/download page.
If the laptop has floppy drive, then copy the SATA driver to the floppy and when you boot up with the Windows XP install CD and then press F6 to install the SATA drivers which is on the floppy as instructed..

Can i create a bootable cd to reinstall SATA drivers?


Yes, you can create a bootable disk
No you will not be able to install SATA driver from it ...

You can get SATA drivers from your manufacturer web site but I doubt you need a bootable CD to do that.

May I suggest you visit www.pcpitstop.com and have then scan your computer. review the report and take appropriate action.

thank you

Can not setup windows xp sp3 sata on hp compaq presario v6700


Ok, the problem here is that the Windows XP CD that you have does not have the proper SATA drivers on it already. There are two ways to get around this:

1. Locate the drivers for your SATA controller from HP's website. Copy them to a floppy disk (old 3.5" style) and install the drivers during the installation. When booting up the XP CD, one of the first things it says is "Press F6 to install 3rd party RAID or device drivers". This is where you would press F6. During the install, it would ask you to provide the hard drive controller drivers. Windows XP only allows for these drivers to be installed from a floppy disk, so if your computer doesn't already have a floppy drive, you'll need to get an external USB drive. Once you give XP setup the correct drivers, it can find the hard drive and continue with the installation.

2. Create a custom XP installation CD with the new drivers on it. On another computer with internet, CD-burning capability, and a lot of time and effort, you can slipstream the SATA drivers into the XP CD that you have now. This is not a process for novice users, and can be very time consuming. For a single installation, you're better off with the floppy drive option.

In order to find the correct SATA drivers for your computer, we'll need to know the exact make and model of your computer. The Presario v6700 is a series, there are many models inside of that series. They most likely use the same driver for SATA, but it'd be nice to know exactly which model you have. THis should be printed on the bottom of the laptop.

Its true. the Bios or HDD driver wont allow you to install Win XP on it.. This BIOS is compatible with only Win Vista. The only easy way to do it is by creating 2 partitions while installing vista. once vista is installed- install XP with Dual boot and than format the vista partition.

Thanks David
Let me know it if works for your problem




Solution: The reason for this error message is that notebook has been shipped with SATA hard drive i.e SATA hard drive controllers. But Windows XP does not have built in SATA controller drivers.
To solve this problem we need to install SATA Controller drivers before we install Windows XP using a USB floppy drive.
Many customers are not ready to buy USB floppy drive and installation of XP is so complicated using USB Floppy drive.

We have found the driver for the SATA controller on Intel Website. Customer has used it and installed retail Microsoft Windows XP with SP2 successfully on his dv6500 notebook.
The same can be achieved in all the dv2500, dv6500 and dv9500 also DV2600, DV6600 and dv9600 notebooks.

Here is the link for the SATA drivers:

1. The file contains the Intel Matrix Storage Manager Floppy Configuration Utility.
2. This utility will create a floppy disk containing the RAID driver files for installation on a 32-bit operating system.
3. This floppy can be used to pre-install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver during the F6 portion of Windows setup.
4. You needs Microsoft Windows XP with SP2 Operating System disc and the USB Floppy drive.
5. After downloading the SATA driver in another notebook, you needs to extract and execute the file. It will help in creating the floppy disk that has the SATA drivers.
6. Boot with the Microsoft Windows XP disc and make sure the USB floppy drive with floppy disc is connected to the notebook.
7. At the F6 prompt, select F6 to install additional drivers which are not in-built in the retail Microsoft Windows XP Operating System disc.
8. When the prompt comes up to install additional drivers, insert the floppy and select the correct SATA Driver. It is Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller.
9. Once that is done, the rest of the installation runs as normal. There are only 2 drivers in the floppy disc that would work.
10. After the Operating System is installed in this manner you can install the chipset drivers for the notebook.
11. However for the other device drivers once Microsoft Windows XP is installed you may not have them from HP as these series are not released with a Microsoft Windows XP Operating System. The drivers like audio, ethernet and media card reader drivers etc.
12. Please be sure with EU that he might not have the other drivers from HP after installing the retail Microsoft Windows XP.

Note: Do not click on the link. Copy and the paste the link into the address bar of the web browser.

Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.
