Could be hardware\driver related but check the "msdos.sys" file first.
By default it's marked as "read only". Right click it, select properties and remove the tick next to the read only attribute, click ok.
Open the file in notepad or wordpad.
There will be a line that says "BootSafe=", it should be set to 0 (zero) (BootSafe=0).
If it's not, change it and click File>Save. Reset the attributes back to "read only" and reboot.
If there's no problem there, look in device manager for conflicts.
