Default how to make a SATA/RAID driver disk

i am trying to load a sata driver for my A8N32-SLI since it didnt come with a floppy. i dled two different files and put them on a floppy. i pressed f6 to load them up but it wont accept them. i looked a floppy drive with drivers and it had them in folders so i tried that and it still doesnt recognize my disk

im basically trying to get it to recognize my striped 74 raptors

this is what you need ,insert a floppy and run the right one to create (youll know by the file name) and click "ok" to start , if the floppy isnt blank it will ask if you wanna delete its contents click "yes" , might wanna integrate it with nlite

Usually you can get the files for SATA drives from the motherboard CD.

omg, i realized that i hadnt plugged any of the cables in. its one of those 9-1 media readers and you have to leave the USB cable unplugged until you setup an OS then plug it in. i was also trying to wait till my round floppy cable arrived before i plugged it in and realized i forgot about it after noticing that the drive light didnt even come on

thanks for the link though - it worked. i bet the others i had gotten initially from asus would have also

the system loaded up just fine after that

~thanks again
