  1. im trying to set up raid on my computer. and i put in the windows cd, restart and press f6 to load up the sata drivers. i then press S to actually install the drivers off a floppy it gives me this error "an unexpected error (0) occurred at line 962 in d;/nt/private/ntos/boot/setup/oemdisk.c." wth does this mean.

    Probably a bad floppy disk. You should try a new floppy disk and download the drivers from the manufacturer's website onto it. Your manufacturer should have instructions on the specifics of making an acceptable Windows SATA driver floppy.

    I think you probably have it resolved by now but just in case...

    The problem is that your floppy drive is either dead or not being
    recognized by your system. If installing windows 2000 it gives
    the error code you mentioned. If installing XP it actually tells
    you that the floppy drive was not found.
