Have Presario V6126TU which has been somewhat stuffed up. Full of viruses and malware. Has no reovery partition and no recovery disks. Want to instal retail version of XP but XP instal has no SATA support so need to slipstream SATA drivers.
Have successfully slipstreamed SP2 and SP3 with the original XP instal CD so what I now need is info on which drivers, where to get the drivers, and where to put them on the instal disks.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just check first to see if there are any SATA settings in the BIOS.
You may be able to change it to IDE mode or similar which will allow XP to see the HDD by default.

Hi, Agree with the advice "Just check first to see if there are any SATA settings in the BIOS.
You may be able to change it to IDE mode or similar which will allow XP to see the HDD by default."

If your in Wellington there is a great guy at The Computer Guy Ltd at www.compguy.co.nz on 04 499 0098.

I've used him several times and am very happy with the service.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the input.

Managed to get it sorted out using Nlite.
