About 7 months ago I posted about the frustration my staff at Schrock Innovations experienced attempting to remove Windows Visa from a Gateway notebook and install Windows XP.
Since then, that post has been the single most commented on post I have EVER pklaced on my blog. With more than 63 comments and counting, it thrills me to see my readers helping each other.
In fact, I received this email yesterday from one of our readers, Rick Burney, offering even more help:
Hi. Came across you site while googling to find the SATA chipset drivers to install Windows XP on newer Toshiba laptops. You said you found drivers on Gateway’s site. I wanted to let you know where to find the Intel drivers that are not vendor specific. They call the drivers Intel Matrix Storage Manager. I downloaded from there, and got IATA76_ENU.EXE file then used the -A switch to extract the files. In the driver folder are the following files iaahci.cat,iaahci.inf,iastor.cat,iastor.inf,IaStor.sys,TXTSETUP.OEM which will fit on a floppy so you can hit F6 during installs. Hope you find it useful.
