Re: sata drivers for windows 2003

You don't say what model the server is, but all the recent models of HP servers do not have floppy drive integrated.
On the quickspecs of many of them it says that you need one USB floppy if you are going to install with SATA RAID enabled:

When installing a Windows OS Environment and configuring the embedded SATA RAID, AHCI, or SAS controllers, installation of a driver from a diskette device is required. The optional USB floppy drive (part number DC361B) is required to accomplish this operation.
