What You Need




  • A computer with a SATA hard drive that you want to install Windows XP SP2 on.



  • A USB flash drive with at least 4 GB of free space.



  • An ISO file of Windows XP SP2. You can download it from here . This is a slipstreamed ISO of Windows XP Professional x64 SP2 VL, containing all updates through April 2019. For the convenience of users, an Intel SATA AHCI/RAID driver covering up to the 300 series is included. You can use nLite to slipstream other AHCI/RAID drivers if you need them.



  • A software to create a bootable USB drive from the ISO file. You can use Rufus, which is a free and easy-to-use tool. You can download it from here.



  • A software to extract the SATA drivers from the ISO file. You can use 7-Zip, which is a free and open-source tool. You can download it from here.



What You Do




  • Plug your USB flash drive into your computer and run Rufus. Select your USB drive as the device, select "Disk or ISO image" as the boot selection, and click on the "SELECT" button to browse for your ISO file of Windows XP SP2. Make sure that the "File system" is set to "NTFS" and the "Volume label" is set to "WINXPSP2". Click on "START" to create your bootable USB drive.



  • Run 7-Zip and open your ISO file of Windows XP SP2. Navigate to the folder "I386" and look for a file named "TXTSETUP.SIF". Extract this file to your desktop or any other location.



Open the file "TXTSETUP.SIF" with a text editor such as Notepad. Look for a section named "[SourceDisksFiles]". Under this section, add the following lines:


iaahci.cat = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0


iaahci.inf = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0


iastor.cat = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0


iastor.inf = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0


iastor.sys = 1,,,,,,4_,4,1,,,1,4


  • Save and close the file.



  • Create a new folder on your USB flash drive and name it "$OEM$". Inside this folder, create another folder and name it "$1". Inside this folder, create another folder and name it "Drivers". Inside this folder, create another folder and name it "SATA". This is where you will copy the SATA drivers files.



  • Run 7-Zip and open your ISO file of Windows XP SP2 again. Navigate to the folder "I386" and look for four files named "IAAHCI.CAT", "IAAHCI.INF", "IASTOR.CAT", and "IASTOR.INF". Extract these files to the folder "SATA" that you created on your USB flash drive.



  • Run 7-Zip and open your ISO file of Windows XP SP2 one more time. Navigate to the folder "I386" and look for a file named "DRIVER.CAB". Extract this file to your desktop or any other location.



  • Run 7-Zip and open the file "DRIVER.CAB" that you extracted. Look for a file named "IASTOR.SYS". Extract this file to the folder "SATA" that you created on your USB flash drive.



  • Delete the file "DRIVER.CAB" from your desktop or any other location.



  • Copy the file "TXTSETUP.SIF" that you modified to the folder "I386" on your USB flash drive, replacing the original one.



  • Eject your USB flash drive safely from your computer.



How You Install




  • Plug your USB flash drive into the computer that has a SATA hard drive that you want to install Windows XP SP2 on.



  • Boot from your USB flash drive by changing the boot order in the BIOS settings or pressing a key such as F12 during startup.



  • When you see a message that says "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", press F6 quickly. If you miss this message, you will have to restart and try again.



  • When you see a message that says "Setup could not determine the type of one or more mass storage devices installed in your system", press S to specify additional device.



  • When you see a message that says "Please insert the disk labeled Manufacturer-supplied hardware support disk into Drive A:", press Enter.



  • When you see a list of available SATA drivers, select the one that matches your SATA controller. If you are not sure, you can try each one until you find the right one. Press Enter to confirm your selection.



  • When you see a message that says "Setup will load support for the following mass storage device(s):", press Enter to continue.



  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation of Windows XP SP2. You may need to enter your product key, choose your regional settings, create a user account, and customize your settings.



  • Once the installation is finished, remove your USB flash drive and restart your computer. You should be able to boot into Windows XP SP2 with SATA drivers installed.



Troubleshooting




If you encounter any problems during or after the installation of Windows XP SP2 W SATA Integrated Drivers, here are some possible solutions:


  • If you get a blue screen of death (BSOD) during the installation, it may be caused by a wrong or incompatible SATA driver. Try to use a different driver from the list or slipstream another driver using nLite.



  • If you get an error message that says "Setup cannot copy the file: iastor.sys" or any other file related to the SATA drivers, it may be caused by a corrupted or unreadable USB flash drive. Try to use another USB flash drive or recreate your bootable USB drive with Rufus.



  • If you get an error message that says "Setup cannot find the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA)" or any other file related to the Windows XP SP2 installation, it may be caused by a corrupted or incomplete ISO file. Try to download the ISO file again from here or use another source.



  • If you cannot boot into Windows XP SP2 after the installation, it may be caused by a missing or incorrect boot record. Try to repair your boot record using the Recovery Console or a third-party tool such as EasyBCD.
