Default MSI mobo, floppy disk fail

I built this new pc and when i first boot it up at the mobo screen it will say "Floppy disk fail (40)" and i have to press F1 to continue. I would like to get rid of this, its kind of annoying to press F1 every time u start ur comp. I treid looking around is bois and couldnt find anything . I made sure Floppy drive wasnt in the boot sequence anywhere. BTW i dont have a floppy drive at all, and i didnt plan on putting one in.

Ok that is weird if you dont have a floppy and its not in the boot sequence or anything, just keep looking in the bios for a setting somewhere. Also look on google for your problem and update your bios. I had a similar problem and updating the bios fixed it.

Disable it in the bios. My board does that too if i clear the cmos and forget to turn it off.
Nothing to see here.
