I have a old desktop that runs on some customized dos software and its motherboard going to give way so I decided to do this:

I cloned the hard drive to my presario M2000 which runs on 915 chipset.

As the chipset doesn't support ME, I get big display of 640x800 with no sound and so on but all this is ok for me as I only need to run the dos software.

The problem is that this laptop got no floppy drive so as I clone over, it just detect a 5.25 drive?

I tried to check the bios but there is no option on selecting 3.5 or 5.25 for floppy.

Is it possible for me to remove that since phsically there is no hardware floppy?
