Load the VIA Chipset 4in1 Drivers first - the main chipset drivers
VIA 10/100 LAN Drivers - wired network adapter drivers
VIA PIDE/SATA RAID Drivers & Utility - load those - using RAID is optional
VIA K8M800 VGA Drivers - the software for the onboard video
VIA VT8237(R) SATA RAID Driver (For floppy driver)
The XP (and 2000) CD has very few if any SATA drive controller drivers built into it. If you need to load XP from scratch from the CD, if you have (a) SATA hard drive(s) installed, Setup won't detect it(them) because it doesn't have the SATA drive controller drivers built into it, if the bios Setup settings are set to SATA (a.k.a. AHCI ) mode.
If you do have (a) SATA hard drive(s) installed...
- if you have a floppy drive, if you need to load XP from scratch from the CD, you can use these files on a floppy disk and press F6 early in the loading of the files from the XP CD when you see "Press F6 to....." . Setup will then later ask you to provide the drivers - insert the floppy disk at that point. If there is more than one choice of drivers, choose the one with RAID support - the drivers include support for non-RAID use. Then Setup will be able to detect SATA drives, later.
- or - you can set your bios Setup to IDE compatibilty mode (e.g. ATA, IDE, EIDE, compatibility mode, etc.) and Save bios settings, then you don't need to provide the floppy disk with the drivers on it when you boot from the XP CD, because the SATA controller(s) and the SATA drive(s) will be detected as IDE compatible.
After you have loaded the
VIA PIDE/SATA RAID Drivers & Utility
in Windows, you can set your bios Setup to SATA mode (a.k.a. AHCI mode) to enable SATA drive's 150mbps or 300mbps burst data transfer speeds, rather than the 133mbps max burst speed of IDE drives.
There is probably info about bios Setup settings in the mboard manual.
AMD Cool and Quiet Driver - optional - slows down the cpu when you don't need it to run at it's full speed - the cpu fan then tends to run slower and be quiter - also requires you enable this feature in the bios Setup settings. There is probably info about bios Setup settings in the mboard manual.
VIA USB2.0 Drivers - if you have Automatic Updates set to default settings this will probably be automatically downloaded and installed in XP, after the Via 4 in 1 main chipset drivers have been installed, but you can also go to the Microsoft Updates page on the Microsoft web site and do an Express search to find it, and choose to install it.
VIA Smart5.1CH Sound Drivers for K8MM3-V/K8MM-V/P4MAM2-V
- Audio drivers.
DO NOT install drivers while booting the computer, before the software for the device has been installed (unless the installation instructions for the device tell you it's OK to do that), when Windows detects a device while booting, you have it search for drivers, it doesn't find any, and it wants you to tell it where the drivers are - CANCEL that, continue on to the main desktop screen, and then load the software for the device by using the proper download, or by using the proper installation program found on the CD that came with the mboard .
If you DID install drivers that way, "Drivers" downloads usually include other associated programs that must be installed along with the drivers, and installing only the drivers usually results in an improper installation of the software for the device.
If you DID do that, go to
Control Panel - Classic View - Add/Remove Programs, and Un-install the software listed for the device that you installed the drivers for while booting into Windows, then install the software for the device the proper way.
