So, I should just change the boot order to start with the CD-Rom first? What about clearing the CMOS (Wouldn't that reset everything back to the first time so that I can try installing Windows again?)?
Anyways, with the SATA drivers disk, I ran into another problem: the driver folder is 2.43 megs while my floppy disks are only 1.44. Could I be looking at the wrong folder, or is there some way to get those 2.43 megs onto one floppy? (There are two main folders that I see concerning drivers -- BootDrv and Drivers. The first one is 2.44 megs while the other is 217kb. But, the first one has files that have names with "ATA" and "RAID," the other folder only has files wihout "ATA" or "RAID"; there are 3 files only: "e100bnt" or "e1000nt4" or "IANSNT4n")
EDIT: The SATA chipset is enabled and what not in the BIOS and the proper connectors are connected, and the drive is detected in the RAID set up screen, but the actual drivers aren't installed. I'm guessing that's why the HDD isn't on that one screen.
EDIT2: I think I found the drivers, but I don't know which one I need:
Promise 20276 ATA
Promise 20276 RAID
Promise 20275 ATA
Promise 20275 ATA(XP)
Promise 20275 RAID
Promise 20275 RAID (XP)
VIA 8237 Series ATA
Is it VIA 8237 Series ATA?
Okay, here's the current situation: I switched the boot order to be CD-ROM -> HDD -> FLOPPY and now I can enter the Windows Setup screen again. However, when I try to press F6 to install drivers, nothing happens; after a few seconds it proceeds to loading files, and when I press F6 when it is loading files, I just hear a little chirp/beep from the computer. At the end of the file loading, I see a message that tells me that it can't find a mass storage device, but that I can press S to specially install drivers:
I press S and put in the floppy disk that I created by transferring over the VIA 8237 Series ATA driver files, but nothing happens and it goes back to the original screen. I tried it by using the floppy that I got with my other MSI motherboard and I still get taken back to the same screen:
Is the computer not detecting the floppy disk? I don't hear any of those load reading noises that I usually hear with floppy drives. However, the floppy drive is brand new and so is the cable I am using to connect it (Connecting it so that the ripped part is connected to the drive itself). The power indicator for the drive lights up just fine. Where can I check in the BIOS to make sure that the floppy drive is successfully being detected (I see it mentioned in a few places in the BIOS, but I think that might be just a general thing to designate what will be the floppy drive)?
