Slipstreamed Install Required for Microsoft* Windows

Certain installations of Microsoft* Windows require pressing F6 during install to load drivers from a floppy drive. If no local floppy drive is available, you may create a slipstream install CD, also referred to as a merged CD

The video demonstrations require Adobe* Flash version 7.x or later, and have a viewing time of 2 minutes 15 seconds.
