Re: Gateway MT6705 notebook, looking for SATA drivers for windows XP
ok, first and formost... if you want the drivers for the MT6705, to use with XP... DON'T LOOK ON GATEWAY'S SUPPORT PAGE. The drivers are for vista only no matter what you hear. Ignoring this will only be a waste of your time.
Now, down to business. I have detailed instructions for downgrading to XP, along with SATA drivers. I also have the XP drivers for the MT6705. it took a lot of time and agrivation, but I found them. Be sure to pay attention to the slipstreaming process for the XP downgrade. After installing all the drivers, you will still have some random modem on HD audio bus warning, but the sound will work just fine. so you can pursue that driver if you want, but I simply don't care enough to look any further. So here is the link for the downgrade/driver package
