Guys, I wonder, if there is any guide on how to manually insert the SATA drivers into Windows XP install CD. Reasons for this are simple:


1) MSI X58 Pro-E did not have a floppy connector, so unless I want get USB floppy, then I need this change in the install CD


2) all guides I found feature nLite and therefore produce only bogus, not working install on Czech Win XP SP3 (this issue is a long time there and it is still there, learned it again the hard way)




So normal WinXP SP3 Czech install did not see the HDDs. Therefore no install. Modified one with included drivers by nLite (last public version (curse the **** program!) do detect HDDs and install fine (it does, sadly, complain that bios-something file is missing?!), untill the very very end. Then is says that it cannot confirm the license and that it is. I never get into the desktop, no matter what. No idea why that happend, no idea why it won't let me enter the product code... etc.


So I would looking for guide that does NOT involve nLite at all, I happily do it the manual way, that way the install will work and not screw me up...


So anyone have some tips for such guide?
