I recently had to replace my hard drive, I'm in the process of trying to reinstall the operating system which is XP Media Center Edition. The system I am working with is a Sony Vaio VGC-RB64G. The motherboard is an Intel e210882. When I start the installation process and the screen comes up where I should be able to select a partition to install windows on there are no available partitions listed. I have checked the bios to see if the HD is enabled and it is. I've done some research and from what I'm seeing the problem I'm having is indicating that I need to install a SATA driver. I am having a hard time finding one, and am unsure if it will even resolve the issue. I was using nLite to create a disk with the driver on it, but since I can't find the driver I'm at a stand still.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if additional details are required.

All the drivers needed for your computer should be on the support site for your lap to via Sony Drivers and Software Page find your product and download the sata drivers, and put them on a floppy and execute the floppy via hitting F6 during the install process.
