    Installing Windows XP new & fresh, with a sata WD5000AAKS. Windows of course won't detect my drive cause its SATA. I searched everywhere and can't find the necessary drivers. I know to hit F6 to load drivers upon Windows XP install, and the system does have a floppy, but can someone lead me to where I can download the files needed so the Windows install will recognize it?

    I think you'll find that the driver you require is not for the drive but for the controller.
