Windows 9X - floppy drive not working

  Aceman 10:59 13 Mar 05

I have a Seimans Nixdorf Scenic 700 computer, I have just reformatted the hard drive and to my horror the floppy drive refuses to work. Is it possible to boot the computer from a cd? If so, how can I obtain the disc?

Boot into BIOS (del, F2, F10 depending on make of PC).

In advanced settings check that Floppy disc controller is enabled.

xp will boot from the cd, but win98 will not.Floppy drives are dirt cheap if you need to replace it.
