using the below procedure i am trying to extract only the setup.exe IAAR files onto the floppy for the RAID 0 setup. up to 2.3 im fine, but when i type in run-->open" window the command to move the files from HD to floppy i keep getting the same message how computer cannot find "c:\bla bla please try typing it again".

i have checked and rechecked this million times and keep getting the same message. in my case it is like this:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\IAAR\Disk1\Setup.exe -A -P C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\IAAR\"

what can i do? the extracted files are 1.95 megs or a bit more than 1.44 floppy. can i install raid from jump drive by pressing F5 or F6 whatever the key is.



from clintfan instructions i followed:

_______________________________________________________________

"2. Make IAAR floppy.
Create a floppy containing portions of the IAAR for use later. This is discussed in Section 4.2 of the Intel IAAR README file. The procedure is detailed here:

2.1. Create a target folder (eg. F:\Pc\IAAR\Files) to hold extracted files.

2.2. Choose Start Menu- Run.

2.3. In the "Open:" window type
F:\Pc\IAAR\Disk1\Setup.exe -A -P F:\Pc\IAAR\Files

where F:\Pc\IAAR\Disk1 is where you extracted the downloaded IAAR content in Step 1.2. Note there is a blank on both sides of -A and also -P.

I used this link and downloaded a self extracting file (.exe) from Intel directly...Then double click on the file it will ask you to insert a floppy...once you insert the floppy and hit ok, it will start format and copy the driver to the floppy.

I believe clintfan didn't ask people to move ALL the extracted files to the floppy, just the driver portion (4 files in total?) The self extracted version from Intel should do the same trick..

self extracting file is 1800+ kb which is more than what floppy holds. i tried that the first time.

it's 271k

i used this to make a floppy for during xp pro installation on p4c800-e deluxe (contains txtsetup.oem) - necessary for installing mass storage controller for ICH5R Intel chipset just prior to OS installation (F6 option so windows installation sees raid array and can install to it)

happy installing

unfortunately the floppy utility does not have the file "txtsetup.oem" which is necessary when installing the RAID driver.

you need 4 files:

iastor.cat, iastor,inf, iastor.sys, txtsetup.oem

and it is missing the last one
