I have a couple of sata drives plugged into the promise raid-sata connectors.

I'm at the stage in installing winxp where I need to provide the promise/ FasTrak sata/raid driver.

I press f6, xp partially loads, I press S, it asks me to put a driver disk in the floppy drive.

I put the disk in the drive. The driver is listed and I select the (only) driver listed. ( 378 fasTrak controller)

It starts loading and then says "\amd64\fastx2k.sys is corrupt press any key" and gives up.

The disk is not damaged. I've made three disks, each on different floppies, each on different computers, and each using different sources for the driver files. One of the disks is the one I used last time I did this and it worked fine. All three disks show this problem.

So I'm screwed. I can't load the driver so xp can't see the drive, so I can't install the os.

I tried all the same things using the older via raid and driver instead and get similar results.

Any suggestions? I'm out of ideas.

Try loading from an external hard drive or an SD card.
