    How'd they come off?

    How old of a system are you talking about?
    Need a little more info to be clear on what you need. On a clean install (on older boards) one would hit F6 during the install. Most newer boards auto install the drivers so it's basically....plug in the drive and install the OS.

    So, please describe how this came to be to help get the resolution likely to suit your needs.

    If you can get Windows to boot, reinstall the drivers available at the motherboard manufacturer's Web site first. If the SATA controller is a separate card, install the drivers from the SATA manufacture's Web site second.

    Okay so you have the SATA drivers now? Place them on a floppy disk. When you begin to install Windows on the computer, watch for a propmt at the bottom of the screen that says "For additional drivers or SCSI drivers hit F6" or something like that. Hit F6 at that point. A little later it will prompt you to insert the floppy disk containing the drivers.

    Make sure you have the correct file(s) on the floppy disk. It should NOT be an EXE or ZIP file. I think it should be a .SYS file. Also, if that is not the reason it's not working, then see this article;

    I also found this nice tutorial on Seagate's site:

    but i dont have a floppy drive guys i was wondering if i could boot it from a windows software cd?

    nLite should have worked. Which version of Windows are you using? There's a separate version for XP/2003 and Vista. Are you sure you embedded the correct drivers?

    yeah i got the raid drivers from off the site but that still didnt work when i try up loading the cd...
