Hello

I managed to get an Old Dual Xeon motherboard circa 2004. ITs an Asus PC-DL Deluxe board w/ Dual Xeon 2.66's. So i figured i would install windows xp sp3 on it an call it a day.

However i am not able to get to the actual installtion as XP does not have the drivers for this board/controller, ok no big deal i went here:

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

And download the Drivers for this baord under Others >> Promise Ata or Promise Raid - however what i got was the ever annoying makedisk.exe program - and of course i have no floppy drive.

Anyone know how to extract the drivers or a way around using a floppy drive?

Thanks,

Robert
