AHCI: Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Intel Desktop Boards
The SATA Controller needs to be set to AHCI.
You can include the 10.8.0.1003_f6flpy driver in an XP installation disk with nLite. The STOR_allOS_10.8.0.1003.exe file can be installed after Windows XP is installed. The f6flpy file needs to uncompressed before using. Notice that one file is 32-bit and one 64-bit.
There is a link to Guide.
The ISO image made by nLite needs to be bootable. This is a free program to do that:
(Notice the check marks)
Yes I've tried nLite but it asks which driver from list to chose and that was original question. ICH7R/DH does not work. Intel engineers claim AHCI in XP for this board isn't supported.
You can highlight ALL drivers listed and include them in the nLite cd. (I think you need to hold the Shift key down while selecting.)
Halfway down the page NZXT installs SATA drivers for the NM10 chipset with nLite.
So Windows Installer can automatically recognize which driver is needed from bunch while Windows Device Manager can't? I think with this board it won't work but I haven't loaded all AHCI drivers in nLite just ICH7.
Reason I wanted AHCI? D425KT board with SSD drive (SATA) boot XP and response very quickly but DN2800MT with 2GB RAM and Transcend TS16GMSA300 (mSATA) responds dramatically slow - few second needed to respond on menu click with fresh system. Don't know the reason. Have installed Win7Pro, updated BIOS, AHCI etc. and it is acceptable but still worse than let say economic D520 ATX with 8GB RAM, 64-bit Win7Pro.
Wonderful now I'm getting kernel data inpage error. I'm tired with this board and ssd drive.
It is something wrong with ssd drive TS16GMSA300 or mainboard - Windows responsiveness is so low, pain in the ***...
Included all list of available drivers with nLite but still got "blue screen" error while installing XP. Please help!
I could install XP with slipstreamed AHCI drivers (nLIte) on TS8GHSD310. Sent back TS16GMSA300 to Transcendent. Avoid this model!
I followed the instructions provided by 'nails' and also the instructions on the webpage listed below. It worked for me.
I used the NM10 driver for SATA AHCI.

I hope it helps.
