Integrating generic SATA drivers into XP install disc

3 posts in this topic

Is it possible to create a SATA-future-proof XP install disc that contains generic Intel and AMD SATA drivers (AHCI and RAID)? Or, no because ACHI and RAID are Southbridge-specific and each controller or series of controllers require its own drivers?

If that wasn't clear, in other words, I want a generic Vista-7 SATA driver for XP that will work with any SATA disk. A driver that will allow XP setup to detect any SATA hard disk and successfully complete installation.

Is it possible to copy ataport.sys from Vista and paste it in XP's system32 folder, copy msahci.sys from Vista and paste it in XP's system32 folder, and copy pciide.sys and pciidex.sys from Vista, delete those files from XP's system32 folder, and paste Vista's pciide.sys and pciidex.sys in XP's system32 folder?
