when booted this machine gives 'disk readerror' despite the BIOS being reset each time boot from HDD it revertsto floppy first bott - and it has no floppy

Isc this amanifestation of a failing BIOS battery?

Change the battery. Without it the CMOS will return to the basic BIOS settings.

You will probably find the clock is wrong as well.
