I have laptop that needs a driver disk for sata drivers for xp but it has no fdd is there a way to preinstall it on the cd somehow? Or is there another way apart from a USB fed?

Thanks for any ideas :)

I believe Service Pack 2 has the drivers you need, so if you can find a copy of XP SP2 to install you should be fine. Otherwise you can slipstream the SP2 files into the XP CD, or do what Carpo suggests and slipstream just the drivers you need.

That's not necessarily true, it depends on your chipset. Skunk you are best off using a program called nlite that will allow to add drivers to your install as Carpo/Ray was suggesting.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
