Compaq c501nr Sata Drivers needed
#1
I downgraded from Vista crap to WinXP Pro. The only driver I can't seem to get ahold of is the SATA driver. The HP website has the "driver" for download, but it extracts to a floppy image creator file "F6flpy32.exe" . If you click it, it tries to save files to a floppy drive (which all modern computers don't come with anymore). I have searched all over the net and have not found the actual files I need. I wanted to get the driver and put it on a thumb drive or burn to CD so I can get this laptop working. Can anyone get this file and make the floppy and then either post them here or email all the files(zipped) to me?
Here's the link to the SATA file on HP that I need:

Thanks in advance.

that laptop is running the intel 945 series chipset.
you will need to load the following drivers.
main chipset driver http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_D...me=Windows* XP Professional&lang=eng

then this controller should sort out the sata.

You still have to get the driver installed at the F6 prompt and unless you have a USB drive that emulates a Floppy Drive the easiest option is to sipstream the driver onto the XP CD using nLite. http://www.nliteos.com/download.html

Simple and easy to use plus you can configure other settings as well.
