If you get this error message and you don't have a floppy in the drive, it could be referring to your hard drive.
Do you have a floppy bootdisk? IF so , put it in the drive and restrt your computer. At the A:\>
(A Prompt) type this and then press enter

sys C:



You should get a message, system transferred. Remove the floppy and restart the computer.


If you don't have a bootdisk go to
www.bootdisk.com and download the correctone for your OS. Run the exe and create a boot floppy.

You will need to access your BIOS setup options to see if the floppy drive is configured to boot first in the boot order.

Watch the first screen during boot to see what key to press for those options.
