The helpers here will need to know the model of your computer before they are able to help. You have listed your specs as "N/A" (not applicable) which is of no use whatsoever!

You will need to consider more than just the SATA drivers if you want to install XP on that platform.
Is your version of XP 32bit or 64bit? I ask this since with 32gb ram you need to know that 32bit XP can only use less than 4gb.
Next are chipset drivers for the motherboard. It is unlikely the board manufacturer produced XP drivers.
Then there are audio, graphics, USB and drive controllers each with needed drivers for which xp drivers may or may not exist.
Slipstreaming is not a new process and there are plenty of comprehensive guides available. I'll leave it to you to google them.

You should also consider the benefits of installing in a virtual machine. Google it if you don't know what that is.

Is your machine an OEM Brand-name or is it a custombuilt? The first place to look for drivers is the motherboard manufacturer or the system builder if it's an OEM.

if i instald xp i remove the 4gb ram cuz my ram is 8gb total, the max is 4gb only in xp?

so whats ur advice?

i want to install xp because if i use windows7 i have a problem "low video performance", the other forums said that try to install xp it might solve my problem about low video performance..

i think because intel and amd has hardware isues thats why im having a problem in windows7 os if im using windows7, in microsost forums they say its a bug in the hardware because others also incounter same of my problem but they downgrade their os to windows xp from windows7..

whats ur advice?

It is entirely feasible as Asus provide drivers, in BIOS do you see "legacy or IDE or Compatibility" mode for the SAT Controller, if so you will not need to slipstream XP.

If you have to add drivers to create a Custom XP CD then use nLite to do so:

The Graphic Card ATi HD6770 Drivers are here:

Also leave the memory in the machine, it will not effect XP.

If you have correctly slipstreamed the SATA driver into the install disk then bypass the F6 prompt and proceed directly to install.

If the drivers are slipstreamed YOU DO NOT need to press F6 as the drivers will be loaded, provided they are the correct drivers....

Do NOT install XP. You have a modern system, downgrading to a 10 yr old OS is NOT the answer.

You didn't list anything about your monitor. All monitors have a "native resolution". If you set the screen resolution to anything other than the native resolution, the display is going to suffer. If icons & text are too small at the native resolution, there are tweaks that can compensate for that, but changing to a non-native resolution is NOT the way to go.

If you insist on installing XP, see the following:

To add to the above, you may encounter problems due to the hidden boot partition created by Win7. If that happens, wipe out all partitions, create new partitions, format using NTFS, then try installing XP. This is no small undertaking, especially if you are inexperienced. Hopefully you realize the amount of work you have ahead of you. I suggest you collect all the XP compatible drivers in advance.

"i want to install xp because if i use windows7 i have a problem "low video performance"

Instead of reconfiguring your RAM to handle XP, going and buying XP, trying to find drivers for XP, and re-installing all your programs. wouldn't it just be easier to but a decent video card?

"graphicscard = MSI R6770 1GB DDR5"

That is a decent video card.

Final word from me, XP is over 10 years old and is past its sell-by-date.....

You have gotten good advice in this thread. We don't know where you were told some of the other advice you mention but I would just state that you need to consider the source before relying on the advice.

As far as WinXP vs. Windows 7 is concerned, the biggest difference is Aero, which uses more resources.

Are you seeing the results of "performance information" generated by Windows 7?

Other than Aero, WinXP and Windows 7 should yield similar performance, given that you have enough RAM installed.

Your motherboard has integrated graphics. After you installed the add in graphics card did you install the latest drivers for it?

Does the computer perform well when using the integrated graphics instead of the add in card?

yes its the latest drivers both bios and vcard..

using integrated graphics = blury

with add in card = blury also :(

Blury graphics would seem to indicate either a fault with your monitor or that you are not using its native resolution, especially as it happens with integrated graphics also. What make and model is your monitor and what resolution, and refresh rate, are you using in Windows?

whats is native resolution?

my resolution is 1366x768 defualt resolution from vcard
