Question about Computers & Internet
Using the F1 key the system is trying to boot with the next device (as they are specified in the boot order menu at the bios settings).

Ok if the pc is recognising the floppy drive and showing in my computer that means it's drivers are installed and the unit is working properly. your first issue F1 in order to get over this thing simply go to go to setup during bootup go to advanced setup check out startup floppy seek disable it. Change the boot sequence to first boot device as CD rom second boot device as HDD disable seek other boot devices.
second issue. right click on my computers select manage go to device manager dbl click on floppy drive and check it is enabled and it is not asking for any drivers.
get one working floppy check it on other pc of yours that it is working and then try to read the contents of floppy on the problematic pc.
after doing this let me know. I am thinking about IRQ clash which I would solve if this does not makes it serviceable.
