Has anyone tried making an XP image that includes the SATA drivers, so as to avoid mucking around with seperate discs? I've just realized this would be a good thing to have - reminded, actually, by someone asking about it on The Student Room.

I did it once but this PC works best with Vista, which didn't need them as its already on the disk. I can't even remember how I did it... Someone told me how to do it, I just followed their instructions!

Done it loads of times. I had an nlited cd (just taking drivers out) and used it to slipstream all the drivers for our pc's in the house. Worked brilliantly.

I despise nLite - it comments a thing at the bottom of some files saying "Modified by nLite"

It doesn't matter if you're just using it to get into XP setup though does it :)

If you despise it, probably you can lurk around the web trying to figure out the hard way of doing it...

I made a XP DVD with all the driver packs using nlite works well but took longer as it copied loads more drivers to search.

Yeah, you can do it manually but it's not worth messing with. I've used nLite more than once when I don't have a floppy drive and it always works. You can, I believe, use a USB floppy drive to load the drivers.

Works quite well, I've designed both XP/Win2k3 install CD:s and recovery partitions on USB drives. I tried nlite once and it works just fine (you can change that "modified by nlite" btw!) but I ended up using BartPE since I also made recovery partitions with the same drivers. And I usually never remove anything from my installation CD:s, I got both the space and time for a full installation. And knowing how integrated everything is in Windows I choose to have all stuff installed from the start. I remove whatever that isn't needed manually anyway since each of my computers needs its own configuration.
