Hi am reinstalling xp pro oem and of course i wanted to raid out my sata drives,the problem is windows ONLY option to do this is to read a floppy to get the drivers for the raid options my disks are fine they work in other machines just fine so i traded out a floppy from another drive and well still got a “no-go” reading the floppy,I checked the cables they are set right and are in good condition.Does anyone know a workaround for loading sata drivers from a cd instead of the drive A option.
Another solution you might want to try is this: Open Device Manager and remove the floppy drive controller. Close Device Manager and reboot. The floppy drive controller will be recreated when Windows restarts. This often solves floppy disk drive read errors.
