Well I was planning on getting my new system soon when I noticed something. It I am correct, when using SATA with Windows XP PRO SP2, you require a floppy to install windows on a SATA drive. When I was looking at the board I'm planning to get and noticed that it doesn't come with a floppy containing the RAID and/or SATA drivers. The motherboard is a Biostar tForce 550 AMD AM2 board. I was wondering if I was correct about needing a floppy to load the drivers. I also checked Biostars website and it doesn't contain a download to the SATA drivers that may be required. So well...DUH. So would I be able to install XP on this drive without a floppy? Perhaps the drivers are on the CD? If so could I use the CD to load the SATA drivers. Oh yeah and I do have 2 DVD-RW 18/16X drives. So getting an extra driver wouldn't be a problem.
