    Question Windows 2000 on SATA

    How can I install Windows 2000 on a SATA drive with out a floppy? Or am I up a creek without a paddle?

    You are screwed, unless you can burn the SATA drivers to a CD rom and then swap your Win2K CD out when it says "Press F8 to load a 3rd party RAID or SCSI driver". I don't know if Win2K setup allows for reading the drivers off of a CD, though.

    When I had to install XP on my new home-built system I had to borrow a floppy drive to install the SATA disk.
    Thanks,

    Matt

    That is what I figured...

    Thanks for your help though.
