  1. Check the FD setting in BIOS.
    Clean the floppy drive.

    Reset all cables.

    Make a fresh disk.

  2. 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.
