A: seek on boot-up

  Leicam 12:49 03 Feb 05

Hi PCAdvisor!

I have an older PII m/c running win95 which won't boot until a disk is in the A: drive! The message 'system error - windows cannot read A:'. The Bios Setup has the Boot Sequence as 'C,A,SCSI' and 'Boot up floppy seek:enabled'! Is the problem here or is the problem elsewhere?

Thanks in anticipation!

Thanks for response, but have tried this doesn't seem to make any difference!Would this problem be Bios related or something to do with the boot/batch files - Autoexec etc?
