No Floppy Drive for F6 Install of RAID Driver


Install & Setup



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

How to fix it
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 may be natively supported by the OS. 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.
