When installing Windows, you'll see it says something about installing SATA/SCSI drives at the bottom. You have to press the corresponding key to let Windows know you need the drivers.

You'll then need a driver disc for SCSI drives for your motherboard, to install with, preferably on Floppy drive

EDIT:

Never mind... you need a cd drive to actually install Windows in the first place...

What you mean, completly wiped?

And whos Ardy? Was that meant to be hardly?

You'll have to find a standard IDE CD Rom to install Windows.
They are cheap if you can't borrow one.

That way, you could at least install it
