HP D530 Sata Driver

By arthur.acopians ·
Hello folks!

So I have a HP D530 and I just installed a 320GB SATA Hard Drive. It only reads 127 or 137 GB. I have looked all over and have given up on looking for an answer so here I am. Asking for an answer. I have XP Pro that does not have SATA drivers. I am capable of slipstreaming the files in, I just need them to do it. Please help me out...I am so frustrated and desperately need my computer up and running...

Thank you in advance.

You have an old version of XP Pro here

You need to slipstream not only the SATA Driver for this M'Board but also SP2 to the Install Disc so that the Windows Installer can format all of the HDD.

The earlier versions of XP only supported 127 GIG HDD's as at the time it was released there where none that big. However because M$ feel behind in the development of what was to latter be known as Vista HDD Size increased beyond the 127 GIG Upper Limit so in SP2 M$ had to address this issue.

So using nLite slipstream the SP2 Files and include the SATA Drivers.
