hi Ahmed,

you'll find a lot of threads in itrc which describe 'how to set up an SATA Raid without floppy'

on of the favored methods is to use a slipstreamed cd which includes the SATA Driver
eg. NLite os --> www.nliteos.com

also see the following threads

example for slipstreaming an XP
How To: Slipstream your XP installation

i hope this are some clues

cheers
