Default Is it possible to boot from...

a controller card. The reason I am asking this is becuase I will have only one SATA HDD hooked up to a card and it won't have windows installed until I boot it upand install it. (MY mobo doesn't have SATA support except for the card)

you will need to boot off the cd then when it says to install 3rd party drivers press f9, press f9. You will need to correct drivers for the controller card on a floppy and in the floppy drive. You may need to do that again (I think it gives you the option to press f9 again) and install the hd drivers.


it may say f6? Just press whatever it says to press...
