Slipstream Windows Easy
Installing Windows can be a pain. First there is the hour long session with the operating system. Don't forget to press F6 if you are using SATA drives. Then there is the boredom of connecting to the Internet to download and install the service packs and updates. Slipstreaming a Windows XP installation disk is the answer and there is a simple and easy way to create your own Windows installation disk complete with the latest service pack(s), updates and disk drivers with a free program called nLite

"Don't forget to press F6 if you are using SATA drives"

Why don't I need to that with my Raptor drive? :unsure:

maybe because your windows cd already contains the good drivers for the onboard sata controller ?

if you use the nForce native SATA connectors then it will work; if you use a 3rd party SATA controller then it will ask for drivers..

much like the RAID ports on a lot of motherboards
