As some of you may have seen in my previous thread I have a server which will not start from the pre-install CD.

I have however now got a bootable copy of Server 2K3 but it needs me to load the SATA drivers for the hard disks during bootup.

It only wants to look on the Floppy drive, which this machine doesnt have, nor does it have anything to plug one in to.

So how do I get the SATA drivers loaded?

USB floppy is always an option. Take a look at nLite, that's the usual way of doing this for XP but I'm not sure if it supports 2K3.

EDIT: Can the SATA controllers be configured in IDE emulation mode?
