|You are welcome. Note also that some system BIOS' have a feature that will allow you to have your SATA drives 'appear' as IDE drives until after XP and your SATA drivers are fully loaded, and then you can switch back your SATA to full speed. Again, make sure you can get drivers before you even bother though. |
Note: XP is a system that will not be supported by MS for that much longer, are you sure you really need to be doing this? If you have W7 (and probably Vista also), you can run many programs from XP under compatibility mode and nearly everything else if you install a virtual machine within W7 and install XP within that.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
