Installing a SATA drive question
How do I install a SATA driver? Is installing a SATA driver a part of the Windows 7 installation procedure?

I'm reading "Building a PC in Easy Steps (2008)" and I'm confused on this part:

(Assuming that Windows 7 won't help me install the SATA driver) "Some motherboard manufacturers do not provide a floppy disk containing SATA drivers. You must make one yourself (instructions will be in the motherboard manual). Typically, this involves booting the system from the motherboard disk and then simply following the prompts. This requires the CD drive to be set as the first boot device."

So, if the motherboard manufactures does provide a disk w/ the SATA drivers, will it really be on a floppy disk? Or is that due to this book being written in 2008? I really don't want a floppy disk drive lol.
