I booted up my pc and i tried to install windows but it says it could not find my driver, so i put the cd that came with my motherboard and a black screen appears with my model name and an option

Generate Serial Ata Driver diskette? Y/N

everytime i press yes, it says source: Generate serial ata driver diskette
only 1.44mb floppy drive is supported!

reboot system now

so i reboot, and it asks me the same question, i press No and it just says reboot and asks me the same question all the time, but before the option appears im on my motherboard menu where i can press f2 for the setup menu bios or whatever its called, f11 for flash memory etc

so how do i get this to work? when i install windows it cant find my driver

What version of Windows are you using? Most Windows insall routines put in generic drivers so you can install the system. Please give specs on your rig and OS so you can get assistance here. The advice you get will be better if you provide the forum with more information.
