Perhaps you could use a USB floppy drive.

Otherwise integrate the MSD (Mass Storage Device) driver into your installation media, or use RIS (Remote Installation Services).

I thank you, i have a USB floppy drive from Iomega, but it seams that doesn't work, afther i press F6 in the beginning of the instalation it works ok, but when the windows instalation starts and askes again for the driver it no longer detects the floppy, acording to HP i need to buy an HP USB floppy :).
Regarding the the Mass storage device were do I put the drivers? in the prompth?

nLite would be a good place to start:

Ther are only a few external USB Floppy disk drives that are recognised by windows in text mode. See here:
