  2. It is not necessary, but you should be able to install the drivers and switch it later, example: http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=444831 There are LOTS of "bla-bla's" about AHCI being great, but ultimately most opinions rely to the FALSE silllogism New=Always Better. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA The main advantages of AHCI over SATA (read IDE emulation) are: hot-plug <-not needed for a system internal HD NCQ <- Native Command Queueing <- this CAN make a BIG difference, IF the actual HD drive supports it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_command_queuing staggered spin-up of drives <-normally pointless in a portable with just one internal HD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spin-up jaclaz Very helpful. didn't expect i can install os first then install driver and change to AHCI. will try this later. and i reckon there should be a solution to this issue from another side, which is to integrate the sata driver into the xp installation media, in my case is the xp w/ sp3 installation files on my usb drive. true? thanks again
  3. XP dosn't support your mass storage controller by default. Integrate relating drivers http://www.msfn.org/board/37-t107504.html You're right. I set in bios to use IDE mode and the setup program can show my hard drive now. So I wonder if it's really necessary to use AHCI mode, which means i need to dig for another several hours or maybe days to get this thing work out, or just keeping the IDE mode is enough for daily home use? thanks
  4. OK... I tried and the problem is no matter how i made my usb drive, when it came to text setup for the first time. the setup program always regarded the usb drive as C drive and showed no internal hard drive at all. anyone encountered the same problem ever? btw: i'm installing on my asus eeepc 1005 laptop. thanks for any clue. i've been searching for installing xp from usb drive for a week....
