Driver to Floppy? Won't Fit? Going Crazy...

I am about to do a fresh install of Windows XP Pro w/new HD, I have found the Motherboard drivers to download to a 'floppy' and have a Microsoft approved floppy drive to be recognized when hitting F6 on the XP install.... However! The drivers are too large for the floppy drive. Granted, it has been years since I used a 3.5 1.44MB floppy, but how difficult can it be? What am I missing? How can I put the drivers on a floppy if they are too big?
Thanx!

Before you install drivers you must first install operating system to do this check BIOS is set to boot from cd then insert Operating system cd and reboot. When operating system installed then install motherboard drivers and any others that are needed

Hi, My Laptop is a Eurocom D900T, and I tried to make a fresh install to have a Windows XP Professional. I checked that the order of the booting sequence is : CD-ROM first, IDE HD and then...


When I've had that issue in the past, it was because the hard drive controller on the motherboard had the ACPI setting enabled. Windows doesn't have the necessary driver built in to see the drive in ACPI mode, so going into the BIOS of the system (usually F2 or F10 during POST) and disabling ACPI in the advanced settings has made it work for me in the past

XP can't be installed in SATA drives because it doesn't have a generic driver for them. Begin the install and during the procedure you will be asked to press F6 to install extra drivers - do just that with the driver that came on a floppy.

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.

The problem of your laptop is the hard disk type. because acer 5220 laptop is using a SATA hardisk that automatic detected or supported by Vista. But in the windows Xp you need to download the sata driver for windows xp and save it to the floppy drive. In the beginning of windows installation press F6 to install another device or scsi the windows setup search your floppy drive for the sata driver and install it automatically. If you have cannot fix it just contact me i'm willing to help you

New XPPro Install... Can't see HD


Try to download a widows XP based driver for your Promise Controller from the manufacturer's website and install it. This is really necessary. If it does not solve the problem, you reinstall windows XP. When XP begins installtion it flashes a message like this: "Press F2 to install a third party driver......" Press F2 and insert the Promise controller driver in a floppy. This way it will work. (I hope so..) Note: Do not remove floppy untill Windows finishes installation
