You may have to go into bios to re-enable it.

This involves updating the BIOS. Boot the computer and enter setup. This is usually
done by pressing F1, Del, or some other combination. Your computer will tell you
which keys to hit right after you turn it on. After entering setup, go to the Standard
Setup, usually the first menu option. Your main floppy drive is A: . Any second floppy
drive is labeled B:. Using the appropriate keys, activate your new drive. Most likely, it is a 1.44MB drive. Use the appropriate keys to Save and Exit BIOS and let the system continue to boot up.
