Have you done any hardware changes lately? Cabling may be loose enough to be seen by the OS, but not able to read media.
When you turn the PC on, is the floppy drive light steady? Or does it turn off after it checks for boot media?
Have you tried more than one floppy?
We're going to make the merry-go-round go faster, so everyone needs to hang on tighter-just to keep from being thrown to the wolves.
I did bye a burner and installed it last year.
When I boot, the OS recognizes the floppy and says "diskette drive A: in..." but the floppy led does not go on at all.
Did not try any other floppy so far.
I sure hope, that You're not right...
