I doubt if this related to SATA drivers. it should ask for them (diskette and f6).
Anyway, just use the recovery disks that came with the laptop or that you made. If there is no hardware issue, those will work.
I am trying to install Windows xp home edition, with sp 2 on new hard drive, as current is about to fail soon, but when I try to run windows xp install disc, after it is done with loading data there is that: "Setup Is Starting Windows XP" message, and shortly flashing "-" appear in upper left corner of the screen.
I read about this issue, and tried to slipstream drivers using usb flashdisc made with nlite + rufus.
But it seems that I fail to slipstream correct drivers, and I am running mad looking for them in internet...
-can't find them on intel website
-can't find them on toshiba website
My computer is:
Toshiba satellite l500-1ef
and I am looking for:
Intel(R) ICH9M/M-E 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 2 - 292D
Intel(R) ICH9M/M-E 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller 1 - 2928
Maybe I am looking for a wrong drivers, or in wrong way.
I will be thankfull for any help on this topic, maybe you too know how it is frustrating to know the issue and could not resolve it.
