Ok, Whenever I start my packard Hell, I keep geting NVRAM Invalid, NVRAM Cleared
Then I have to press ESC to contune the boot process, but when this comes up, it screws up the boot process and only boots off the HD Only, not off a floppy. How can I fix this?

Nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM)
Nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM) is a special kind of RAM that retains data when the computer is turned off or there is a power failure. Like the computer's read-only memory (ROM), it is powered by a battery within the computer. It can also work by writing its contents to and restoring them from an EEPROM.

There maybe a battery that needs to be replaced, but I have never encountered this in a machine I have worked on.
