Disable floppy scan at startup

  anchor 16:32 21 May 05

Can someone please tell me how to disable the option to scan the floppy drive during boot-up and shutdown.

Using WinXP-Home with SP2; Norton AV 2005, Zone Alarm Pro.

Boot into your bios, (normally by continally tapping delete key when booting) go to advanced bios settings, and disable the floppy in first, second or third boot device.

Disable floppy seek also, save and reboot.
