I am having trouble installing XP to a new Gateway notebook. I have booted with XP Pro SP2 CD and "F6" on starting the install process. I then install from the floppy the additional drivers needed for the SATA controller (iastor.sys - mobile ICH7M - Intel 82801GBM) and click on CONTINUE.... then I choose to format the partition NTFS .... then it starts formatting and then it stops after a few seconds and asks me to insert the "Intel Matrix Storage Manager" driver into drive A. It is stuck at this point.
I am using a usb floppy drive to install drivers.
What am I missing here as it does not even try to access the floppy drive when it asks for the Intel Matrix Storage drivers?
