Question about installing Windows Vista on a SATA hard drive.
I just installed a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L motherboard on my computer. Now I'm just getting the other parts together. I'm thinking about getting a SATA Hard drive instead of a PATA hard drive, and install Windows Vista on it. But I heard that you need to load drivers when you install vista, or else the installation program won't recongize the hard drive. The motherboard only came with a DVD that saids it has the "chipset/SATA/RAID/Network and Audio" drivers. But how am I suppose to load the drives during installation? Do I swap DVD's later if I only have one DVD drive? The manual saids to load the drivers only after the Operating System is installed, but how am I suppose to install the OS now? I haven't installed it yet, but I don't want to mess it up.
Can someone tell me if the DVD that came with the motherboard is actually the disc with the SATA drivers, or am I suppose to download the SATA drivers somewhere, since I looked at the Gigabyte website, and it didn't have any SATA drivers. Thanks!
