firstly i had no idea the ms forum was soo funny. I just came across your
problem, i cant find dirvers for my sata controler for installing x64. i
thought about installing it to an IDE dirve then making an image of the
drive, then copping it to the sata drive. it might be worth a try, altho its
more likley to fail. altho i stress just copping the "windows" folder wont
work, it would have to be a TOTAL bit by bit coppy of the entier hard disk.

Won't work if the installation needs a sata driver to recognize the drive.
