I'm trying to install windows xp in a maxtor sata drive.. of course i need to use f6 in setup to install the sata drivers.. so I made a floppy with appropriate files (at least i think appropriate) and tried to use f6 during installation... then prompted to enter floppy and hit enter... then the floppy gets accessed, however windows setup still asks to hit enter (never recognizes and never loads drivers from the floppy)..
note: i reformatted the floppy before coping files
file list on floppy: TXTSETUP.OEM iaStor.sys iaStor.inf iaStor.cat
specs: windows xp pro, gigabyte-8knxp motherboard, maxtor 250 sata drive
I already used http://beta.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Q_20742910.html
for some reference help
I got the drivers for the floppy here http://www.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Support/FAQ/FAQ_401.htm
any clues out there? or any links to images of the setup that actually recognize the floppy during f6
