Re: Windows XP and SATA support
If you mean does Windows XP sp2 pickup a SATA hard drive if you install it as a second drive then yes, you'll find it detects it as a SCSI disk device. However if you want to install Windows on it then you need to make a driver disk, I use MaxBlast4 (free download) to prepare the disk for installation and create drive disks if needed. This software is for maxtor drives but does work with others.
Give it a try..
