  1. Welcome at MSFN Forums!You should be able to get Windows XP with integrated SP2 or SP3 installed without loading or integrating any textmode drivers. If your HDD should not be detected by Windows Setup, you are running your SATA hdd either in AHCI or RAID mode. So please check your BIOS settings, because the driver integration method depends on the BIOS settings of your nForce SATA Controllers. These drivers usually are old and not the best ones. The one you find within the first post of this thread. The 780i MCP lacks support for the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) nvidia 780i sli review Here you have my current bios settings...I hope you can help me to get my disc detected by the xp installation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ -Standard CMOS Features: - IDE Channel 0 Master [None] - IDE Channel 0 Slave [None] - SATA 1 (A0) [WDC WD3200KS-00PFB0] - Extended IDE Drive [Auto] (can also be set to "none") - Access Mode [Auto] (can also be set to "large") - SATA 2 (A1) [HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH20] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
