    press f2, go into your bios, search around (sorry cant be more specific) for a disable floppy seek at boot

    then save your change and reboot. I have seen it in various bios settings, but haven't gone looking for it in a while

    Please go to Thread Tools and choose "Solved." That will indicate to folks that you no longer need assistance. The courtesy will be appreciated.
