Cornwall then Norfolk now
I've got one sata disk that i want to use as my boot disk and install xp on. I'm not doing anything with raid for the mo but i'm unsure what drivers i need to use to install Xp at the F6 screen. unless i'm missing something can i just use the Intel ICH7R raid drivers that are on the CD? also do i use the 64bit ones if i'm running a E6600 cpu or the 32bit ones?

Thanks

depends on the mobo and which sata controller you use whether Windows recognises it by default

p5w DH you shouldnt have any problems though when not using raid ( I have a raptor and seagate working without any problem

If you want to have the Sata ACHI functions you need to use F6 at the XP install start. If you leave it in IDE mode it will be limited.

Second one down under ATAPI.
