Angry SATA RAID drivers

I need some help, my PC has two SATA drives, and I'm trying to format and reinstall windows, but to do that i need to (and prefer) to set them up as a raid. However, my floppy drive died and I was wondering if anyone knew a way to install a RAID driver during windows setup without a floppy drive. any help appreciated

Ronin2395,

You need a floppy disk to load the drivers, there is no other way.You have to get your Floppy drive fixed.

During sata RAID driver installation, you have no option to select the device to install the drivers from. The default and only device that OS accesses during installation is a floppy drive.
