I bought Asrock FM2A75 Pro 4 and I want to use Windows XP Professional 32bit with SATA AHCI enabled mode, but It seems that there are not any SATA/AHCI drivers for A75/A85 chipsets. There is a "SATA RAID Driver (For system to read from floppy diskette during Windows installation)" in download area for Windows XP of Asrock but I found this in google:

"What you need is the AMD AHCI driver containing the amd_sata.sys, but AMD doesn't offer it for Windows XP (32/64bit) and I doubt, that the Win7/Vista driver will work with Windows XP. Furthermore the AMD AHCI drivers don't have any TXTSETUP.OEM file, which is absolutely needed for the XP installation."

I tried to integrate above drivers with nlite, but during xp install I got this error:

"Could not find amd_sata.sys"
