They're often (usually) on the CD your motherboard manufacturer supplied to you. I went through the same thing a few months ago until I found that CD.

You can also find it on your motherboard's website; you need to copy the driver to a floppy, try to install Windows, and press F6 when it tells you to "Press F6 if you want to install a third-party SCSI/RAID driver".

Either way, you need a floppy :) That's actually a bit scary, since you can't find many of them now.

Sata drivers come with your mother board. they are on a floppy or on the motherboard CD. Give us some specs on the comp and we can try looking.
Do you have the cd that came with the computer?

Hi,

You have to download drivers / have CD supplied by motherboard manufacturer. Need to copy the drive files on a floppy drive. When you start XP install press F6 to specify additional drivers and use drivers copied on floppy.

Regards,

Dipak
