MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Sata Drivers?
« on: 30-October-12, 04:05:06 »

Im planning on building a W8 HTPC, and want to first install Windows XP 32bit so I can use the upgrade option.

In the build will be a MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Mobo paired with a AMD A6 5400K CPU.

Now Im going to hit the inevitable wall of pre SP1 XP Disc missing SATA drivers so Im learning how to combine my XP disc with the mobo's SATA drivers to create a new install disc.

I downloaded the ATI System Drivers for Axx Series driver package from MSI's download page for the mobo, but I really don't know where the files are I need for a successful 32 bit XP install on a new machine, within the extracted RAR file.

Im guessing its somewhere in Packages > Drivers > ???

Any help would be appreciated, Im not overly techy and already overreaching myself a bit here, so any info useful.

Have a read through this thread  https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=162816
Similar challenge  :yes:
You should first load XP with SP3 at least or get someone to assist you with an installation of Win7  possibly.
The thread itself makes reference to nlite which I have no experience with, but I trust the discussion there may assist you.

Why not just do a clean install of Windows 8?

Better still, why not just use Windows 7 instead? :idea:

Now why didn't I think of that.  :lol_anim:
Win8 (Vista) bugs will be sorted when Win9 come out.  ;-))

Windows 7 costs a lot more! At the moment its possible to get Windows 8 upgrade for £15, the only caveat being you need a pre installed copy of Windows. I dont have a spare W7 lying around, but I do have XP spare....if I can get it installed.

Bernhard - I have made a combined SP3 + XP ISO disc, would that have the sata drivers necessary to at least recognise the hard drive to boot the install (ie no "Press F6 for drivers")?

 XP with SP3 slipstreamed should be OK. XP SP1 will never do on newer MB's but is fine with SP3 slipsreamed in.

You could set Sata to native-IDE mode, then XP will install without problems.
