Directly from Microsoft -
Maybe they meant in IDE/PATA mode (set in BIOS)?
(edit - sheesh! See? Confirmed! Moderator is full to their eyeballs!)

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.

It can be but requires manual registry modifications. The problem is only about switching from IDE. You don't need to modify anything if you're switching to IDE or even between SATA and SCSI as long as the required drivers have been installed in advance.

I thought you understood all of the implications after this thread and how to integrate the SATA drivers? Why this topic in reference to an Asus Support Moderator after being told "how it works" already? (Start at post #11, please...)

No, will the txtsetup.oem file tell nlite what drivers to add then from my unwrapped exe driver folder ?

I just downloaded the ZIP file, unpacked it with UniExtract, in the "funny name" folder (not funny-named in your case, because you didn't use UniExtract), I see the INF files, the TXTSETUP.OEM file, and the CAT and SYS file. In the I386 Folder is a single TXTSETUP.OEM. If you were to OPEN the FIRST ".OEM" file you'll see where it POINTS to the I386 Folder AND you will note that is specifies SATA. In the OTHER one within the I386 folder it says RAID. RAID and AHCI do not equate.
PATA (or ATA/IDE/EIDE, etc etc)
You're REALLY getting hung up on the differences between IDFE/PATA, SATA, and RAID... RAID even exists on OLD PC's - I have an old HP that has RAID on the (OMG!) "real" SCSI controllers.
Point to the one in the BASE folder that has the INF (etc) files in it... Let nLite do its magic and TEST it!

P.S. I could add ANY drivers and it doesn't matter if they are NOT used, right? After all, look at ALL of the drivers already IN the XP that... NEVER GET USED!!!!
