How can I install ATA133 drivers through a CD or flash drive?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I had my floppy disk crashed a few days ago. I used to install the ATA133 drivers through the floppy drive to make windows show my hard disks. I have original disk of Windows XP Pro and if I install the windows again, it prompts with the message to ‘Insert a floppy disk’.  Is it possible to install those drivers through Flash Drive or the CD?

When does it ask for the inset floppy disk option? Because during the installation it does not ask for such options as far as I know. The windows xp installation is clean and simple. However if it asks you in the windows then there is a chance that you can get them through cd.

Just download the respective drivers from the manufacturer's site and put them on a flash drive or a cd and install them.

There is also a tweak for that which I myself used when I had the ATA.

  1. Right click on My computer icon and click on properties in the opened window.
  2. Go to Advance tab and go to device manager.
  3. Select the PCI Storage Devices and let the windows search for automatic drivers for it. Because these drivers are built into XP to support people which don't have floppy disk anymore.
