FDC is the Floppy Disk Controller. Is the floppy drive working? It may be a faulty motherboard as the controller is built into the chipset.

Or a faulty or incorrectly inserted floppy drive cable or lead.

The mobo maker concerned has never been a legend in the industry...:-)

Check in the BIOS as I think it's something to do with a setting in there You will have to check thoroughly each page
