    I have a new SATA hard-drive and the drivers that are needed for this Seagate hard-drive are not included on my XP installation disk therefore I get a stop error. There is no floppy drive available on the laptop so the F6 option Wis not usable. Can I use UBCD4Win to create a boot disk with the right drivers and install Windows XP from UBCD4Win? If not are there any suggestions?

      hello,
      if you got seagate HDD then seagate tools is free for you
      down load it and make a bootable CD (it gives you option )
      then if you got original HDD use clone option to clone the old HDD to new SATA larger HDD
      this assumes that previous hard disk is not knakered.

      the other option is to slip stream SP3 with your original XP bootable CD
      hoping SP3 will have the necessary drivers and can see your SATA HDD

        my XP CD for instance contains SP3 already, but dont you always have to add storage drivers manually by pressing F6/using a floppy?! Thats news to me...

          What are the "DriverPacks"?

          Each DriverPack is a package of drivers for a particular category of hardware. There are for example DriverPacks for Sound devices and for Graphics devices. For each of these DriverPacks we include every device driver of that category. On top of that, we solve tricky problems such as driver conflicts for you.

          They are intended to be used while creating a Windows 2000, XP, 2003 or Vista (and soon Windows 7) installation disc/image. We also provide you with the software to make that as simple as possible.

          Your Windows installation disc doesn't have drivers for all hardware, and over time the drivers it does have get out-of-date.

          We've built this to simplify the lives of network administrators and employees of pc shops, but also enthusiast pc users.

          Sounds cool? Then explore our downloads and come and say hi in our forum!

          If you're afraid of taking any chances then the chances are great that you will never learn anything

            in order to stay current, I will have to download the huge UBCD4WIN-file from time to time? Is there no handier alternative in order to update drivers and stuff?

              Run file....
              "C:\UBCD4WIN\plugin\DriverPacks.net\BASE\DPs_BASE.exe"
              to update or configure the driverpacks.

              Read...
              "C:\UBCD4WIN\plugin\DriverPacks.net\BASE\docs\DPs_BartPE_HelpFile.htm"

              PS: Newer is not always better. Use Mass Storage Driverpack version 805 for best compatabillity until the next new release from driverpacks.net.

                  I have to disagree here.. nLite ( as mentioned in the link ) uses several methods which are non-standard and can cause other issues. The better method is still to use the Driverpacks.net method to slipstream the drivers into your Windows source files and rebuild your install disk from. You can't use that same source to build UBCD4Win with but it works great for Windows installations.

                      Ben,

                      Don't worry about it... your post was going in the right direction.. you just were unaware of the other issues with nLite... happens all of the time.
