Pressing F6 for SATA driver Update

Hi guy, i have a windows XPSP2 machine here and i also theres a Q-tech Sata PCI card on ibe if the slots. Now i can access the SATA cards utility and in Dos prompt .

I also i install the Sata application in the OS. thats completed.

Now i but in my windows setup disk, then i goto where it says press any key for loading from disk. I press F6 and it then goes into the windows setup. Then when it comes to the point that it states press F6 for installing sata drivers , i then press it but notthing happens ? its like the key stop responding on me but iif i press F2 then it works?????

Im trying to install some sata drivers here for a PCI card but i cant get any further than pressing F6.

It doesn't happen just right then... you'll have to wait a little bit, THEN it will ask for the floppy disk.

Some KB including some new Microsoft KB you have to press some key to activate the normal function for F6 otherwise it'll have another function !!!

You should get to a point after you press F6 tha tit will ask you to e press S to select the proper driver from the floppy. Follow the directions after that,.
