Level of Importance:Optional

Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

Important Information

The required drivers for some mass storage device controllers are not present on the Microsoft Operating System CDs. Previously during the initial setup, the customer would place a 3 1/2 floppy disk containing the drivers in the A: drive, and when prompted, he he would depress the F6 key. Currently, many new computers are being shipped without a floppy drive and this utility gives an alternate method of providing the drivers to the Operating System during installs
