The SATA situation depends on your SATA controller and your
hardware configuration. I have installed all CPP versions
on an MSI K8TNeo2 with a SATA drive because the BIOS has the
option of SATA, RAID, or None. When you select SATA the
SATA channel is seen as another IDE channel and no
are needed for my VIA chip. The SATA
channel show up as second Primary and Secondary IDE Channel
in the Device Mananger under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. If
RAID is selected the SATA shows up in the SCSI and Raid
controllers, and usually needs an additional device driver
