    Ok ill sum it up.

    Got a Windows Vista laptop but for uni i need Windows Xp. So thought fine ill run a dual boot. Went out and bought Xp home, partitioned the drive, and wacked the disc in. Came up to install xp all fine then it goes " sorry cannot find a hard drive" After looking about on the net i see it is becuase of a SATA drive i have. So i install again but press f6 at the start it asks for the drivers on the A: drive. I got the chipset drivers from the laptop site (see above link) put them on a usb pen drive and put it in. Read the drivers fine but then said cannot contiue because setup cannot find Txtsetup.oem. Thats it where i got too.

    Any ideas?

    OK alrighty the txtsetup file should be here. You will have to extract the files from the exe with a program like WinRAR.

    *EDIT* I Changed WinZip to WinRAR because WinZip will not do the job. /*EDIT*

    *EDIT* WinRAR will not do the job either. To get a copy of the file on a computer that does not use the drivers you'll need to double click iata76_enu.exe and let the install process begin. Then bring up the task manager with Ctrl+Alt+Delete and on the process tab you need to kill both iata76_enu.exe and Setup.exe. If you don't kill the processes with the task manager but cancel them instead with the install program then txtsetup.oem will be erased.

    Browse to C:\WINDOWS\Temp\IIF\Winall\Driver and you'll find the file in there. /*EDIT*

    At this point my "from memory" instructions are a bit fuzzy, so I'll just say that I use a combination of this guys info and nlite. With a little study, I'm sure you can slipstream a Windows XP disk without any problems.
