Default How to install windows on a sata hard drive with an ASUS A8V Series Mobo

I was using the search feature on the forum to answer this question for somebody (I had answered it before and I was trying to find that post). I found that this was a frequently ask question that was never properly answered

Asus never thought it was important to explain it to people. I guess they thought everybody was rocket scientist. they have a boat load of raid drivers and floppy discs maker on this disk. they fail to realize that most people don't even know to go to their cd to even make a disk. most mobo makers will ship a floppy for their sata drivers.

go to your D:\Drivers\VIARAID\6420RAID\DriverDisk (I think it is this one. the sata one) with D being your cd rom drive of your Asus cd and make a floppy (you will see a floppy disc maker here)

boot from your windows cd to reinstall windows

hit f6. when prompt, load your floppy. finish the rest of your installation process to install windows.
