SOURCE: diskette drive 0 seek failure
My guess if it's new is that it doesn't have a floppy drive but thinks it should.
Enter BIOS setup by hitting F1, F2, Del or similar at startup (there should be a message saying Press <some button> to enter setup).
Then it will depend on your BIOS (they're all different) but you either want to tell it there isn't a floppy drive or tell it not to check for one, or tell it not to display errors if it doesn't find one.
Unfortunately all BIOS's are different so I can't tell exactly what setting you're looking for.

This is a setting in the bios , so what you are going to have to do
is boot into bios and under the boot section and check to see if the floppy drive is a option that is part of the boot sequense if it is change it so that is not part of the boot sequense than go under the periphial section and check to see if it is showing up there as a removable device if so change it or disable it all together since you do not have a floppy drive ok
and this should take care of he problem
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
