Can't boot system from floppy

  Epirb406 19:32 05 Apr 2005

Hi all,

Have a 'just for fun' system built from the cheapest stuff I could find on Ebay.

Up and running with win 2000 pro.

Can't get system to boot from A: drive, using a varity of boot disks, get the message Remove disks or other media, press any key to restart.

Haven't spent a lot of time looking at 2000 specific advice because I thought that bootdisks bypassed the system and loaded independantly. Am I wrong?

Have tried an old ME boot disk and a 98 one,

Any ideas?

Thanks, Epirb.

Possibly a fault with the floppy drive, also have you checked the bios?

Look before you leap etc!!!

Regards, sorry to waste time.
