    I need SATA drivers for my laptop, but cannot find them in the inf format.

    IBM Thinkpad X61
    Intel’s GM965 Express chipset


    Does anyone know where to find these?

    Am I safe in assuming (I know what that usually means) that the SP3 download is the same for XP Home as well as XP Pro? From everything I've researched it appears to be the case but would like to be sure. Thanks in advance!

    That is a safe assumption. :)

    This guide is great! I've been looking into slipstreaming for awhile and have found mixed reviews on the process and difficulty...most complaining about many "coasters" as a result...burning my first compilation -- will report back!

    Hi -
    First of all, thanks for this site. I'm hoping it will help me when I replace my faulty IDE hdd with a SATA hdd. My mobo is a Gigabyte (GA-7DX rev4.1) and I'd be surprised if it supports SATA, so I plan to use an IDE-SATA adapter. If the mobo is also faulty, then I have the hdd to use in a new build. So my first question to you is this: will I still need the SATA drivers for Win XP to recognise my hdd?
    My second question: If I have .NET Framework 1.2, .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, and also .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 already installed, do I still need to install .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 (as advised on page 1 of your instructions)?
    Thank you for considering these questions.

    I thank you first off for the great info advised. My question is in regards to the SATA drivers. I have a biostar MB and the Southbridge is Via. I cant seem to find the drivers. I found the hyperion pro 4 n 1 but, which is the correct .inf file and do I need more than one file? TIA

    I was fine until you mentioned 1C: Lastly, prepare a directory structure as seen in figure 1-1:



    Fig. 1-1: Choose an empty folder and create these directories inside of it.

    then i was lost

    1) create a new folder (call it "WinSlip" for kicks)
    2) create new folders according to figure 1-1 inside the new folder you created in step 1

    Invaluable info. Thanks for being here. My question is: will this all work on WN XP 64 bit?

    I'm not authoritative as I moved on past XP a long time ago, but I think so.

    Hi!
    I finally got the drivers and followed your guide. Before installing Windows I changed BIOS settings to AHCI. The installation was good and Windows is operating in AHCI mode.
    What puzzles me is that in Device Manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, there is no mention of Serial ATA - only primary and secondary IDE and standard dual channel PCI IDE controllers.
    I have located the slipstreamed drivers in Windows/NLDRV/001. Am I getting the most out of my SATA drive? Is the controller installed?
    Thank you.
