Well driver pack works OK. But if you need to install windows on SATA drive it won't be recognized by the installer. Try it on a VIA motherboard and you will see it. Drive will work after install, but you can't install on it if you use only your driver pack. I have MSI KT600 Delta motherboard and this is the ONLY trully working way for installing windows on SATA drive.
You need to let windows know where are the drivers during the presetup phase. This is the only way, you slipstream drivers in the windows. This goes for every other SATA drivers. They need to be slipstreamed into installer and I386 folder.
B‚shrat, you could try to make similar thing for every other common SATA driver, so the people can install on SATA drive.
Actually i tested B‚shrat's driver pack & it works on every sata controller i tested with any sata drive. in his driverpack base there's batch file which compresses and renames .sys files and adds text to txtsetup.sif to support text mode sata controller support. tested with sil 3112, 3114, via, highpoint 374 and some more.
