windows XP install ..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Have a couple problems with installing it. I need SATA drivers on a disk , I have the right ones, but my floppy disk isn't working ... It's plugged in. How can I see it's working? Must the light be on?



second is a problem not realy with winXP, but going to ask it anyway

whenever I have a bluescreen or something, my pc sets "manual FSB" on disabled, result, a default processor ... I never had this problem, untill now ...

Well for your first question you dont actually need to install sata drivers during windows setup because to get your SATA drives working just make sure you disable raid in your bios and it will show up in windows setup.

Well, the light on the floppy drive should not be on all the time. Check if you've got the correct sides plugged (ie. red side of the ribbon to the correct side). check the same with the mobo's side of the ribbon. And make the floppy drive is enabled in your bios.

if the light on the floppy is on all the time, then flip over the floppy cable and plug it back in - it should work now


also make sure that the floppy is #1 in boot priorities in BIOS
