      To my reckoning, SATA drivers, for Windows XP, were released in SP1 and were improved in SP2 and  SP3. Apparently, the original XP release did not support SATA technology. Windows XP was first released in 2001. With a newer BIOS and SP3, XP seems to run Mach3 with no problems on all XP boxes.

      if your install cd is an original older XP it wont recognize the sata hard drive in the newer pc because the drivers are not on the older cds.
      I went crazy trying to install my original XP pro onto a newer machine till I searched the net and found out why.
      there is a workaround but I have never tried it.
