Drivers wont install for SATA on A7n8x with EXISTING install of XP!!

  1. Anyone run into this problem?
    Existing install of XP - added a Seagate SATA drive - XP comes up and sees the new hardware (Raid controller) - and asks for drivers. I point it to the correct drivers (tried several different versions) - and it seems to start going along ok - and then comes up with the following message:
    Cannot Install this Hardware. An error occured during the installation of the device. The system cannot find the file specified.

    The strange thing is - is even though the Raid controller is in a state of ... hanging there with an exclamation mark on it in device manager - the system then comes up and sees the actual drive. But if I click on the raid controller in device manager - it says it is not working properly and cannot tell me what drivers are running it.....

    Any help would be appreciated!!!
