I don't see why that notebook model would need a sata driver to install Vista.
There are no storage controller downloads on the support page.
I downloaded and disassembled the chipset driver, and I have zipped up and attached the IDE and RAID drivers under Attachments below.

I have programed other mini notebooks with XP and the Intel SATA driver and it worked fine, but trying to program this mini notebook with Vista, as soon as it reboots I get a message that it can not find any HDD. And this one has an Nvidia Sata controler.

Well Paul, I've been fighting with this HP Mini 311 for more than a week now, trying to get Windows Vista programed on it, but I have not been succesfull. The SATA Ide Driver you sent is doing the job with Windows XP Pro SP3. I am going to give up on trying to get Vista loaded on it. Thanks ever so much for all your help.
