I'm having probs getting xp installed from cd-rom boot. I've read in other threads that I have to install the SATA drivers. Well it goes into windows setup and I hit F6 to manually install SATA drivers but it does not stop, it proceeds into windows setup and not giving me the option to install the drivers. Any other suggestions ? Thanks in advance

Are you using a keyboard that has the F Lock key?. If so, then as soon as the "Press F6 to load SCSI drivers" blue screen appears you'll need to press the F Lock key, then the F6 key. Be prepared to insert the floppy that contains the controller drivers...you'll be asked to do so during the first part of Setup.

What did you do to fix it? Because i get that problem whenever i try to install XP on my Raptor HD. My fix was to install XP on my 20gb 5400rpm HD then use western digitals hard drive tools to copy it over to my Raptor HD.
