One way is to slipstream the Sata drive into the XP Install CD, see here: Install Windows XP on SATA without a Floppy (F6)

Hi
I bought a SATA dvd drive.
To install XP on my P67 I now need to make a slipstreamed XP disc with the AHCI driver on it which will take the place of a floppy with said drivers on it.
Is that correct? Just want to make sure.
What drivers do I need to put on the disc?
Asus Drivers
Also, which connector do I connect my (older) SATA HDD to? Intel P67 SATA 6.0 or SATA 3.0?

You need Marvel and Intel drivers according to the manual.

As for which port, the manual shows this:

8. Marvell® Serial ATA 6.0 Gb/s connectors
(7-pin SATA6G_E1/E2 [navy blue]) 2-24
9. Intel® P67 Serial ATA 6.0 Gb/s connectors
(7-pin SATA6G_1/2 [gray]) 2-22
10. Intel® P67 Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s connectors
(7-pin SATA3G_3–6 [blue]) 2-23

Which port is your current drive connected to?

I would connect the old drive to the next one in sequence and connect the SATA DVD to a different port pair completely.
