Intel 82801XXX/631XXXX SATA Drivers

Download IconWindows XP SATA Drivers For Intel Chipsets

One of my readers recently left a comment stating that he had difficulty finding an Intel SATA driver for Windows XP for his HP Pavilion Notebook.

It is often difficult to find these drivers and in this case they were hidden in the Vista Chipset download!

These SATA drivers are suitable for the following (extracted from the readme.txt):

  • Intel(R) 82801HEM SATA AHCI I/O Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801HBM SATA AHCI I/O Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801HR/HH/HO SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 631xESB/632xESB SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801GR SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801GH SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801FR SATA AHCI Controller
  • Intel(R) 82801FBM SATA AHCI Controller

Note: Also includes RAID drivers for the same chipsets.

    I have been searching for days for a solution to install xp on a Dell 6400 latitude. I get the blue screen and am making a bootable disc but I could not find the right drivers anywhere. Got so happy when I found this website. But as others I clicked the like button but I don’t see a download link. Please help and send me the download link so I can hopefully fix the laptop. Cheers
