You'll need to make a Slipstreamed Install Disc with the STA Driver Included follow the directions here



on how to make a Slipstreamed Install Disc and include the SATA Drivers and anything else in the way of Service Packs/Patches

Or you can use a product like nLite to do the same thing


But if you do use nLite you need to read the Destructions listed on their Web Site here


If you do not have a SATA HDD post back with your system Details so we can help you.
