Most servers these days come WITHOUT a floopy drive.
Has Microsoft modified its ASR to work on these servers WITHOUT a built-in floopy drive or external USB floppy drive ?

Can use ASR restore without internal or external floppy drive ?

Is R2 any better ?

TIA,
Mike

The answers to this are

No. Microsoft has not Midified ASR to work without a floopy Drive

Yes and No. You need an external or internal drive - some BIOS's will allow a USB memory stick to emulate a floppy drive do you may have a chance here - but I have not tried it, I have done it though with an external USB floppy

No. Its exactly the same in R2
