remove the floppy drive if you don't need it. if the light on the drive stays on the cable is back to front

I have this error, have removed the floppy drive completely and I still get this, the weirdest thing is that when I go into BIOS it doesn't show up with any errors and says there's no floppy drive present, yet on startup it says there is, very odd.

I just sort of got used to hitting Escape to continue =]

if you can get to BIOS disable the "halt on floppy error" option wherever it is

That's what someone else suggested to me but looked on every page and it wasn't listed, also checked user manual and couldn't find it.
It's not a huge problem as it's an old PC and the error doesn't stop it running, just more of an annoyance.
