Hi all,

Just ordered a new set up (DS3 with SATA drive) and XP Media Centre, and two SATA DVD/RW etc

I have read in the past about needing a floppy disk drive to install SATA from scratch, is this right, or can I just plug and go as such?, I don't own a floppy drive or even a disc...am I fubarred?

Mine installed without the SATA drivers needing to be installed, should be ready to go. Otherwise nip to the local computer store and get a FDD for a fiver!

Many thanks for quick responses
