not just formatting it from XP. Get a boot cd or boot floppy and wipe it completely clean. Just to make sure that no remnants are left behind.

After that, then install the system, and when prompted, add the SATA drivers

After that install the the motherboard drivers and other drivers that the system should need. Then run MS updates (such as SP2) handy. Install them all and reboot. Install an antivirus and latest update(s), and then connect to the Internet and update anything else needed.
