  1. I need to be able to install RAID drivers without using a floppy. A quick google showed slipstream is the best way to do it.

    Unfortunately most sites show WinXP slipstreaming, but not 7. Anyone got instructions on how?

    use Nlite to slipstream your disk, you will need the drivers to hand.

    i don't think nlite works with windows 7...

    can't you just put the drivers on a CD-ROM or USB flash drive and point to the media during installation?

    I actually though Win 7 would look for them for you ....! or ?

    Moving along, is "Yokelsville", a real place...? Never saw that before.

    I just found out that Windows 7 will recognize USB sticks. Well, hopefully.

    As for the link given by LookinAround, it does. Now, I've got a problem with the Microsoft site, which won't let me download the needed software.

    If I downloaded one off a torrent, would it still work, even though its for a Beta version of Windows 7? If I'm right, this should be a legal download since its a free download from MS.
