    I'm trying to install Server 2003 on an XPS200 but the hard drive isn't
    recognized. I downloaded the SATA drivers for XP from the Dell
    site and stuck them on a floppy and hit F6 during the Server 2003
    install to load a mass storage driver. I get a list of about 7 different
    choices, but all of them cause errors when selecting them. I assume
    this is the wrong format for the sort of disk that the install is looking
    for. Any idea where to get this disk (and exactly which Intel
    SATA controller the XPS200 has?) Thanks!

    The SATA controller shows under XP Pro as:
    Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controller-270P
    Inter 82801GR/GR SATA AHCI
