    Please provide more info like your motherboard make+model..
    Also note that driver support for Vista is in a very bad state right now! And by SATA drivers do u mean the ones that u need while installing the OS (via floppy), or the ones u need after u install the OS (IDE Drivers)??

    SATA is PnP...OS will and should load the drivers on its own....any case u can try out the HDD manufacturers site.

    @grinning_devil: SATA Hard Disks are PnP, but the SATA Controller needs drivers! Hehe..

    @alanpaladka: Try: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    If u dont find drivers specifically for windows vista, you could try installing XP drivers, if Vista accepts them.. Didnt u get a floppy with your motherboard? See if that works..

    Already tried the manufacturer's site. No use.
    @kalpik, No the floppy doesn't help!

    Hmm... you'l just have to wait then! Hehe.. Actually, even windows XP didn't support any SATA controllers originally.. but support for *some* manufacturer's was added in SP2.. So you should wait for the final release of vista or some service packs. Do gimme the manufacturer and model of the motherboard.. And check on the motherboard manufacturer's site, not the hard disk manufacturer's site!
