Default setting up SATAII for...

I built a computer this winter, first one, in my sig. I'm not sure how to set up the SATAII for the hard drive because I don't have a floppy, is there any other way? or do i have to get the bootable floppy?

You can get the data from your motherboards website. Look for the RAID drivers and download it. THen copy that over to a floppy disk. THere will usually be directions on that site on how to do this. If you still have your motherboard CD, there should be drivers on there somewhere. You'll have to look for it and then copy that over to a floppy disk.

I think Windows XP can only take floppies at the moment. It really sucks that way.
