  1. Thx for being patient with me, cheers
  2. Ok will do, think im going to just streamline the following with nlite, Intel® Matrix Storage Manager Driver V8.2.0.1001 for Windows XP, i just extracted and just 1 folder with the txtsetup.oem file in it, and i think thats the proper driver i need, as the marvel driver is just for the ide slots, if i added more sets of drivers to nlite, it wont do any harm will it ? as xp will only use the right ones correct ? just means it will have more to chouse from.
  3. i know you say sigh but i ask because in some driver folders there aint any files, just the txtsetup.oem file on its own, and other folders on there own.
  4. No, will the txtsetup.oem file tell nlite what drivers to add then from my unwrapped exe driver folder ?
  5. Cheers, yeh i think i will try a few things, thx
  6. because different people telling me different stuff, also when i posted photos here of the drivers i had tried to extract, know one actually told me what to point to when adding to nlite. but i am very grateful of all advice given to me, cheers
  7. Ah i thought the registry trick only worked on win 7 and not xp, and there are no sata drivers for xp anyway for my motherboard, well there is but there wrapped in a exe it seems.
  8. yes he said if i set bios to ide mode, but he said the sata hard drive would still be seen if in one of the sata 6 ports on the board, and would still benifit from the extra sata speed than a old ata/pata drive gives you, the only thing missing would be AHCI and a few other things. Oh i forgot, i know AHCI cannot be enabled on XP after install, but can the sata drivers be installed from desktop, as only drivers for my motherboard for xp are in exe format.
  9. I have been told that as long as you install xp pro with either sp2 or sp3 they include sata drivers, i was told this by a actual moderator over on the asus support forum for my motherboard, can someone confirm this is correct ? cheers
  10. Thankyou for that post, i will do some tests once i get my system up and running, i just wanted to make sure my new sata hard drive will still have some benifits connected to the sata port(even thou AHCI wont be enabled or sata drivers installed ) on motherboard over a old ide drive connected to the old ide slots, and allen2 confirmed it will be enabled as a sata drive still.
  11. Thx for confirmation, i hate being OCD over these things and asking the same sort of question over and over again, cheers for understanding.
  12. Thx again guys, so even installing a new install of xp pro on my sata hard drive without intel/sata drivers with the default ide setting in my motherboard bios, it will still be like useing a sata drive and not a old ata/pata drive correct ? its just that i will loose a little because its not AHCI enabled, but still the bandwidth will be upto 300 and not just 133 limited of a old ata/pata drive, cheers
  13. So what about my question guys
  14. So guys, am i right in thinking, if i install xp pro with sp3 slipstreamed into my install disk, and install useing my asus p5ql pro motherboard useing the sata port connected to my install sata hard drive with bios set to ide, i do not have to slipstream the sata ahci/raid drivers in if bios is set to ide and i do not want to enable ahci or raid in the future ? i mean will i still get the sata hard drive working to its 300 speed spec, i know it dont actually get any where near that, but i mean will i be getting the full benift from my connected sata drive compared to just a old pata/ata hard drive, i just want confirmation please / cheers
