Default XP Install problem

Well, I've used my floppy disk that I've created via the utility and it doesn't load my drivers. IT keeps saying "Please insert the manufacturer disk." I've also tried one driver alone and it still does nothing.

What's wrong?

BTW, I'll check if the FDD isn't bad.

And...it;s been 4 times I've tried posting that POS.

Yeah, I was in a bit of hurry lol!

Anyways, it's me trying to install my RAID drivers from the floppy. Unfortunately, when I pressed S and Setup looked for the drivers, it couldn't find any. So, what I JUST did was to check in Vista. It couldn't load the floppy either. I changed floppy drives.

Why was it the floppy drive? Well, I didn't hear the usual seeking sound of it...so, that leas me to that.

Yeah. I'm running it now. I've got to say that it's faster than XP with IDE or Vista lol!

Well, I can't blame the floppy drive. This guy is 14 years old.
