You are using this guide at your own risk. I don't take any responsibility for any problems.

 

Important information!

 

Before you will do anything please create a set of recovery discs.

 

            Resources:

         Using HP Backup and Recovery Manager in Vista

         Creating Recovery Discs or Saving a Recovery Image to a USB Flash Drive (Windows 7)

 

All pre-installed drivers and software by HP are in the C:\swsetup folder. If you still have it on HDD then burn this folder to CD/DVD. You may need them someday.

 

If you haven't got now any system on your notebook / netbook then skip two above steps.

 

Links to SATA drivers are included in pdf and doc files of this guide.

 

 

Table of Contents:

 

 

A How to check which SATA driver you need.

 

B Intel SATA drivers.

 

C Nvidia SATA drivers.

 

D AMD SATA drivers.

How to check which SATA driver you need.

[ Edited ]

Ad A.

 

Install CPU-Z in your current system. You may download this program from here.

Below screenshot shows where you will find links to this software on CPU-Z home page.

 

CPU-Z 01.PNG

 

Now run CPU-Z and select ' Mainboard ' tab.

 

CPU-Z 02.PNG

 

CPU-Z 03.PNG 

 

You will find there two important informations about your chipset:

 

  • brand (in above examples: Intel)

           and

 

  • type (in above examples: PM965 and HM55).

 

 

If your laptop chipset is manufactured by:

 

  • Intel

           Go to point B and do everything what's written there.

 

  • Nvidia

           Go to point C and do everything what's written there.

 

  • AMD

           Go to point D and do everything what's written there.

If you've got few Intel models and you want to use only one installation disc for all of them then:

 

 

You need to slipstream Intel SATA drivers using nLite.

 

Here you will find the doc file containing a guide that shows the slipstream process step by step with the title " How to slipstream all Intel SATA drivers into a Windows XP installation disc. " (use Microsoft Office or Open Office (free software) to open it).

Nvidia SATA drivers.

[ Edited ]

Ad C.

 

 

For models with ION or ION LE chipset (HP Mini 311 and Compaq Mini 311c series models):

 

You need to slipstream the SATA driver using nLite.

 

Here you will find the doc file containing a guide that shows the slipstream process step by step with the title " How to slipstream the Nvidia SATA driver into a Windows XP installation disc. " (use Microsoft Office or Open Office (free software) to open it).

 

Here is the pdf file with the same guide (use Adobe Acrobat Reader (free software) to open it).

 

 

 

For models with other chipsets:

 

You don't need to slipstream any SATA driver.

Determine does any Service Pack (SP) has been integrated with the XP installation disc and if so, which version (it should be at least SP2). How to do it?

 

Here you will find the doc file containing a guide with the title " How to determine which Service Pack (SP) has been integrated with the XP installation disc. " (use Microsoft Office or Open Office (free) to open it).

Here is the pdf file with the same guide (use Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) to open it).

 

 

When you will find out that the XP installation disc was not integrated with SP or integrated only with SP1 then use the below document to check how to slipstream SP2:

 

 

Here you will find the doc file containing a guide with the title " How to slipstream Service Pack into a Windows XP installation disc. " (use Microsoft Office or Open Office (free) to open it).

Here is the pdf file with the same guide (use Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) to open it).

Please write in this new topic three important informations:

 

1. That you used 32bit_ATI_SB7xx_RAID&AHCI_driver_v9-4_WHQL and sp43839 SATA driver.

 

2. Notebook product numer (p/n).

 

       Resource:

       How to Locate the Notebook product number (p/n)

 

3. SATA Hardware Ids.

      How to find them? Go to:
 

      Control Panel -> Device Manager -> IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

      find on the list SATA AHCI Controller, right-click it and choose properties.

      Next select ' Details ' tab and use the dropdown selector to choose Hardware Ids.
