Angry failed hard drive controller [Fujitshu; x565; winNT4]

sponsored links

 
The hard drive controller has failed, no probs I thought get a PCI ATA card and it will be fine. Wrong the new card (maxtor Ultra ATA/133 PCI) needs its software loaded on before it will recognise the drive and therefore work. I can't do this as CD rom also works of original controller. Even if I try to install say 98 I can't as have no working CD.

Can anyone help, suggest a solution?

you need to download the drivers, and load them when installing...
