well you were on the right track....you need to find the sata controller drivers (manufacturer's website >driver/download). It must be one for the XP operating system and you will need to set it up to install from a floppy (if you have one) or from the cd/dvd. Then you will need to install the driver through the F6 method that is prompted right after the Boot from CD option is offered!
