How do you instal raid drivers w/o a floppy drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I  am building my own computer and I want to run both Win XP Pro SP3 and Windows 7 64 bit.  The only reason I'm wanting to keep XP is that several of my old programs, that I still use, are not compatable with Windows 7.  I know XP is sometimes "fussy" about installing on SATA drives and requires the F6 install the drivers.  The mother board I'm using does not support floppy drives.

    Motherboard:  ASUS P8Z68-V LX

    Processor:  INTEL: i5-2500K

    Hardrive:  Western Digital - Caviar Black WD7502AAEX 750 GB

     I've seen a couple of internal and external USB floppy drives, but I'm not sure that they'll work on first boot during the installation.

    Any suggestion? 

    Thanks ahead,
