I am going to format my PC and I need to put all my drivers on a CD or disk. Last time I formatted I had a problem with loading SATA or RAID drives during setup and I would like to fix that this time. Could anyone give me a detailed explanation on what drives I need to load at setup and where I can find the rest to put on a CD for when I get XP up and running?

Here is a pic of all my devices:

Hi there

Your best bet is to find out the exact model number of your mobo, then go to manufacturers website & download the motherboard drivers, including the SATA driver floppy disk. Do the same for the rest of your hardware.
The only driver you should need for the reinstall is the SATA driver. Just press F6 when prompted, after starting XP setup, insert the floppy & install the sata/raid driver.

If you don't know the exact model of the motherboard, download this & it will tell you :
