I doesn't pop up anything. It just tries to read the floppy then goes back to the same screen. I think the floppy is made correctly because I tried remaking it a bunch of times and no dice. I made it using the included asus cd and the make "ICH8R Driver" option.
It could be two things:
1-The floppy drive is perhaps broken or connected improperly or
2-The disk is not good.
I've had this happened to me before.
Also, go to Intel and download the latest drivers for F6 disk and Matrix Raid because they'll also update the ROM in the ICH8-R.
Here's the link: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...4&submit=Go%21
Also, if you don't have the latest BIOS, you should update them too because anything below 0711 have some addes feature in the SATA set-up for the BIOS that it's sort of confusing and that could throw you off. With the 0711 that option is gone.
Set the "cluster" size to 64KB, don't use the default's 128KB.
Other thing you could do is set your SATA drives as RAID........then install the
RAID/AHCI Software - IntelÂ® Matrix Storage Manager (#3 download) and let your single drive to the RAID for you.
See, you can set up a RAID within Windows with that software as well:
Once you're done, you'll have to set up your RAID in the BIOS as the first bootable HDD and then install Windows.
