Howto install windows xp with onto SATA

  1. Let me start by saying that I am far from computer illiterate and have read the readme's. I see the folder that came with mobo has the drivers however these are 30mb big and windows xp will only accept a floppy with f6 option. I see in my readme that it says

    3. Press F6 for third party SCSI or driver installation at the beginning
    of text mode installation. Press 's' when setup asks if you want to
    specify an additional device, and insert the diskette labeled
    'Silicon Image SiI 3112 SATARaid Driver Installation Disk' .

    Where is this image or disk? I cannot find it.

    All You need to do is locate the exact drivers from the disk for the SATA and then put them onto the floppy disk.

    Copy the following files to floppy from that 30M driver package:

    Instdll.dll
    Si3112r.inf
    Si3112r.mpd
    Si3112r.sys
    Siisupp.vxd
    SIWinAcc.sys
    txtsetup.oem
