|Yes. Followed instructions after 'floppy'. Screen came up with four choices.|
Only one applied, this was for XP. Others were for Win 2000, NT, etc.
Screen then showed windows was starting, then the message 'NO DRIVE. Remove floppy and reboot computer'.
Could it be the SATA controller, which has never ever been used on this comp. Don't know how to check this (if possible).
