RAID driver for Windows 2003 without external FDD

Hello experts,

I have an HP ProLiant DL140 G3 server. I am trying to install Windows server 2003 on it.

I don't have neither the RAID driver floppy disk nor an external FDD.

Is there any way for installing Windows 2003 server on RAID by CDRom or USB flash only?

You need to slipstream the driver into the install CD, possibly the easiest way .

As I remember there is only one way. During installation process you have to use floppy disk with drivers :/ Sorry

Do you have HP ProLiant Essential Foundation Pack? There should be possibility to install Windows Server 2003 with HP drivers in unattended mode.

I would ssecond using nlite as suggested above, works well for me.
Buy a USB floppy.  They're cheap and it works fine.
