    Hello Everyone,

    I am running XP Pro on my homebuilt desktop. During startup the floppy drive detection takes way too long. Is there anyway I can disable floppy drive detection? Suggestions and advice are welcome.

    Turn off floppy drive detection in Bios / remove it from the boot order

    Thanks a lot Z. That really helped me start up faster without the silly floppy drive.
