    Will this cooler be good enough?

    When I was building my P4 XP rig, I was planning to use the Northwood P4 HT 3.06GHz that I already had, and luckily for me the only s478 cooler I was able to find (Akasa AK-675S) said that the 3.06GHz model was the maximum it supported. The motherboard I got came with a 3.4GHz Prescott, but I...

    Help finding SATA driver for Intel 865 chipset

    Hmm, I've looked into it a little more. It actually DOES have a driver installed, it just is shown with the same name as the IDE controller (Intel 82801EB Ultra ATA Storage Controllers). The device ID matches up with the SATA controller.

    Help finding SATA driver for Intel 865 chipset

    The only option in the BIOS is to enable the SATA controller, I've looked through all the IDE/SATA settings and I've got the IDE controller set to "enhanced mode" instead of "compatibility mode" (which sounds similar to the settings for SATA controllers I've seen on more modern motherboards). I...

    Help finding SATA driver for Intel 865 chipset

    Right, so it runs in IDE mode and you can't change it? That's pretty dumb, tbh. You don't get the full speed of the SATA interface.

    Help finding SATA driver for Intel 865 chipset

    ASUS P4P800-X. Unfortunately, no SATA drivers are provided on the ASUS site. Unfortunately, this is not a RAID system. Just regular AHCI, which that driver does not support.

    Help finding SATA driver for Intel 865 chipset

    I need either the bare drivers, or a compatible version of Intel Matrix Storage Manager/RST. The chipset drivers I downloaded only installed the IDE controller driver. Thanks.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    This is one of the original netbooks, not only are there no Win10 drivers for it, it would absolutely murder the poor thing. I have tried a few Linux distros, but again they ran like a dog and some things didn't work.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    I looked up what the SATA controller was before I started this. I found a document on HP's website about slipstreaming SATA drivers into an XP ISO, and it said that it would only work with SP2. So I tried it with the drivers I'd already been using, this time slipstreaming SP2 into the ISO...

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    I've had SP3 running on it already. It chugs like a dog, hence me trying to get SP1 up and running. It's more lightweight.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    Nah, the only time it will be online is to use Windows Update, that's it. I like to tinker with these old things and see what I can do with them. If I can get a smooth and stable system running on it, I'll try some games and stuff.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    It struggles to run XP, trying to run Vista would be like trying to get a wheelbarrow to win an F1 race lol.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    Yeah, this thing doesn't have an SSD. It has an 8GB flash chip with no option for putting in a hard drive or SSD.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    Like I said, I can't use SP3 because it's too bloated for this netbook.

    Can't install XP on old netbook

    I know what the problem is. It's because XP didn't natively support SATA until SP3 came out. I used to have this problem all the time back in the day when fixing PCs for a living. But I can't for the life of me get it to run on this netbook. I've downloaded the appropriate Intel F6 driver...

    Why are two of my hard drives running at SATA 3 instead of SATA 6?

    I only have one SSD. The Asmedia ports do indeed allow the HDDs to run at SATA III, and I'm not worried about the slightly slower speed compared to the Intel controller because these aren't SSDs we're talking about here. A hard drive can barely saturate SATA I, let alone SATA III. I only...
