    HEXUS.guide: Installing Windows XP with a 3rd party SATA/RAID driver

    When installing Windows XP, most of the time you'll find that it has the basic drivers it needs to install itself. However, sometimes you might need to intervene. This tends to be the case if you have a special type of storage, such as Serial ATA or a RAID device. In situations like this, you need to load the necessary drivers from a floppy disk at the beginning of the setup process.

    There is also nLite (not 100% guaranteed to work but is easyto use) that lets you avoid the floppy altogether.
