Specs: Windows XP, P4 3.2GHZ
I have an old Thinkcentre S51 with both PATA and SATA connections. I have cloned Windows XP from my PATA to a SATA drive using Lazesoft, which does a nice job. But when I try to boot into the SATA drive, I get a blue screen, before it even gets to Windows. I have the boot order right, and the bios recognizes. Windows also recognizes it, since I can see it when I boot into the PATA drive. I don't think it's the cloning program.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

I seem to need to supply drivers for SATA during a normal installation, as XP doesn’t include them.

But not having gone the route you have, my input is not based on experience; so hang in for more input from those here with greater experience in this area.

Presumably the SATA drivers are installed as you say that XP recognizes the SATA disk when used as an additional disk. I believe that, as the OS has been installed to boot from a PATA drive, that you will need to do a repair install from your XP CD to enable booting from the SATA drive.

Hi riider,
Yes, it sounds like a plan. I've been trying to locate the raid/sata drivers for this chipset ...... Intel Grantsdale-G i915 G/GL/GV. I think it might be here -
Do any of these look like they might be the ones?
