SATA driver needed for nc6400

Hi, - 

 

I have this HP nc6400 labtop, and have had to clean the disk with the option in BIOS, as it wasent accesable at all.

 

Now, when I want to reinstall WinXP pro, the system do not find the SATA drive.

 

I know that I have the opertunity to install a SATA driver with F6 in the beginning of install, but how do i get this driver?????

and how do I "install" it while trying to install XP?????
