I just built my new system and wanted to install XP on my Maxtor 80gb SATA. So, I read that I need to setup a floppy w/ the drivers on it to load at the beginning of windows install. Well, for whatever reason, I have 2 different floppy drives that will not work in my system (don't know if its the cable or connection, or mobo or what). So, is there any way to do this w/o using a floppy, I am doubting, but hoping, so I have installed xp on my regular ATA drive for now. My floppy shows up in my computer, but even when I try to format a disk, or read one, I get a response of "device not ready" or "no disk present", but the floppy drive doesn't even make a noise like its working, and it works in another computer.
