Default Gateway MT6705 notebook, looking for SATA drivers for windows XP

Good afternoon, I have a Gateway MT6705 notebook, it is sold whit Windows Vista installed. Since Vista is useless for me at this moment, I'm trying to instal XP, but I'm having problems to find the SATA drivers:

Gateway MT6705
Computer:
Operating System Microsoft Windows Vista Home

Processor Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Mobile Processor T2060
1.6 GHz | 1 MB L2 Cache | 533 MHz FSB

Chipset Intel® 943GML

Hard drive 120 GB 5400 RPM SATA hard drive WD1200BEVS

I got from this page the Western Digital drivers, Serial ATA Serial ATA RAID Controller Drivers, I stored in a floppy, inserted the Win XP Cd, hit the F6 key as recommended, then when I specified the SATA drivers from the floppy, it seemed to go ok, but when the cd prompts the ENTER KEY to setup XP, a message appeared saying that it was impossible tp find a hard drive.

I got the process from this link

Do I need any extra SATA driver, I mean more than one?

Did anyone reply to you? I have the SAME laptop with the SAME problem (downgrading to XP on GTWY MT6705 laptop)...I cannot find the SATA drivers..IF i do get the driver files, will they work on a flash usb drive, as I do NOT have a FLOPPY DRIVE on the laptop??

any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can download the SATA drivers from Intel. Look for the 32 floppy configuration utility. Run it on a computer that has a floppy drive and then open the disk and save the files to the hard drive. Then get nLite and slipstream them in as Text mode and only select the Mobile drivers (don't really know which one it is exactly) Then you will be good to go. I am currently formatting my Laptop drive right now getting it ready with XP If you dont' have access to a computer with a floppy i guess i could e-mail the files to anyone (consider this a last resort).

I have also solved the audio problems and SM Bus Controller problem. the only driver needed now is the modem on high definition audio, but it's not a big deal since the audio is working
