Hi,

I was trying to clean up my daughter's main drive system has been dragging for a long time, 233 MMX with 128mem), in a hurry, I mistakenly used win cleaner to clean up hard drive... I got two good reboots afterwards... then went to reboot again and got the ol' insert system diskette.

The system currently will not recognise the floppy so I can not insert a system diskette. I was able to get to the bios and put in the info on the HDs, then after booting again (same error msg), in the blue box above the error msg, it showed HD at Primary 0, and the CDROM at P1 (system has 2 HDs, floppy, and CDrom--2nd hard drive or floppy did not show up at all--yet both are showing fine in CMOS)???

Any help??

go back into the bios.

Make sure the floppy drive is enable and set to 1.44mb

One of your ide's, primary or secondary is not configured correcty.

Sounds like the primary as it won't boot.

Reset primary ide again in bios, save and exit
