    I want to upgrade my windows to XP Pro rather than do a system restore which installs XP Home
    My problem is, the model I have SR1839uk does not have a floppy drive, so how do i install the drivers for
    the SATA hard drive after I press F6 to install 3rd party drivers.
    I havent yet tried this want advice before I start.....Thanks for any help anyone can give.......

    You could open the box and connect a floppy drive for the install.

    You may be able to put the drivers on a CD and use them from there.

    A USB floppy may also work.
