Check the FD setting in BIOS.

Clean the floppy drive.

Reset all cables.

Make a fresh disk.

Can you run CHKDSK on the floppy and if so, how many hidden files are shown?

There should be 2 or 3.

If none, this is why it is not recognised as a system disc.

Alternatively, check in the bios the boot device search order. Ideally the floppy should be first.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
