I was trying to install Windows XP on my computer after the hard drive crashed... this is a 1.7Ghz Athlon (socket A). I use this computer to record my music on... my programs that I have will not work in Windows 7.
So I had two 160 GB SATA drives and I hooked them up to a PCI sata controller card, but what I forgot... is that I need a floppy disk to install the Sata raid card drivers, during the Windows XP install. Luckly, I had a floppy drive in this computer, plus one in my Windows 7 computer.. I'm glad that I did not throw them out! LOL..
I got everything up and running again..
