No floppy drive for F6 install of RAID driver

Description:

Unable to install the AHCI or RAID driver using the F6 installation procedure because the system does not have a floppy drive.

Solution:

Use one of these methods to resolve the issue:

  • Attach a USB floppy drive. You might need to enter the system BIOS and set the USB emulation mode to floppy.
    Note Not all USB floppy drives are natively supported by the Microsoft Windows XP installation*. If your USB floppy drive is not recognized, try a different USB floppy drive.
  • Create a bootable copy of the Windows setup disk that includes the RAID drivers. This procedure is called slipstreaming. Rerun the setup with the slipstream version.
