    Have you checked the install disk to see if the drivers folder is there if it is you don't make a folder you either use the recovery console and copy the folder from the install disk to the c:/windows/sytem32.

    Do you have SATA drivers on a floppy so you can hit the F6 key at the appropriate time?
    that may the issue. Wehn installing on older HP workstations xw4400 I had to have the Intel Matrix Storage manager drivers so i could chose the controller. I also ahd to set to ACHI in BIOS before starting. But when I did the xw4600 with the HP media I had no such problem.
