Specs: ME, 1.3/256
How do I install ME on a SATA machine? ME install does not call for installing a SATA driver during install, therefore when I try to install ME I get a "No bootable Media" message.

Go into the BIOS & change the drive setting to IDE compatibility mode. Why would you want to run WinME in the 1st place?

Windows ME does not have native support for SATA controllers. If you cannot use "Legacy IDE" mode settings in the BIOS as riider suggested, there are third-party SATA drivers available.

See this website, under the SATA section.

"where is compatibility mode setting"

It's in the BIOS, that's all I can tell you. You posted absolutely nothing about system specs so it's impossible to look it up to find the exact terminology. Each BIOS is a little different.

Do NOT pay for a software patch, hack, or whatever you want to call it.

When you start the computer and see the logo of the manufacturer, or diagnostic screen or whatever before Windows begins to boot, press F2 until a setup screen appears. Look for an option to enable legacy ide mode and turn it on, then you can install ME.
