Well, I've got almost everything I need for my upgrade but still waiting for Dabs.com to purchase the CPU at their end for delivery. Anyway, it will be the first time that I'll be using a SATA drive so would like to ask whether I need to a floppy drive to install drivers in order to use the SATA HD. I'm not planning to install a floppy in this new system as quite a few members here have mentioned that they also have no floppy installed. The motherboard came with two floppy disks - both contain RAID drivers. I'm not going to use RAID on my system. If drivers are needed in order to use the SATA HD, how should I go about installing the drivers? Plug floppy in, then pull it out after? Or, other method? Any help will be appreciated Thanks in advance.
