What sort of computer do you have? Particularly how old is it?
It may be a bad cable or bad floppy drive, but that is pretty uncommon.
In your boot order what is set to boot 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.
I would try setting boot order as follows: cd drive, hard drive, A drive and see if problem goes away. If it doesn't then it may be a physical problem, but I don't think so because of the fact that when you have device unplugged you still have the message.
The other possibility is that you may have an incipient problem with the hard drive, and it is looking for another boot device.
