I'm planning to install XP Pro on a new machine with a motherboard that supports RAID. The partition XP will run from will be on RAID 1. To set this up you normally enter a floppy disk with the motherboard RAID driver at the beginning of the XP installation.
I'd prefer if the new machine didn't have a floppy drive. It's pretty much pointless now. But this poses the problem of loading the RAID driver. Can XP read this driver from somewhere else (maybe USB) or will I have to install a floppy drive just for this?
