Microcode update error on bootup

Hi everyone, I have a Hp Compaq dc5100mt
its working fine but the BIOS post screen comes up with this error on every start up and you have to press F1 to continue every time; "1801-Microcode update error. Missing or invalid processor microcode update."
(The processor fitted is not the original one but the system still works fine once you continue on from the post screen)

I downloaded the microcode update. The problem is that the microcode updater (see the following images) asks for a destination disk to drive A:, But I have no drive A:, "Floppy"

Can you help ??

Since that utility appears to be creating a bootable floppy disk to install the update, I don't see any option other than temporarily fitting up a 3.5" FDD. Someome else may have another idea though...
