i keep getting this message every single time i try and turn on my belta computer. Now this computer is from a Thailand company so i haven't been able to find much help online, but from what i can gather it isn't booting to the OS because there is something wrong with the floppy disk drive. Well the computer doesn't have a floppy disk drive...... so i think that might be the problem :p . Anyway after a little bit more digging i found that by going to the bios settings i could disable the computer from thinking it has a floppy disk drive. Here's my problem however, i can only get into "insyde software SCU for intel chipset" witch is sort of like bios as it lets me set the boot order and such, but there is no option to disable hardware in this menu. so does anyone know how to get to the actual bios settings so i can disable the floppy disk drive? the model is an M3C if that helps any.

thanks for any reply's =)

if you can change the boot order, change it to boot the floppy last. that way it will boot to the CD or the HDD and never get to the floppy search.

well the spare hardrive was a sata, and the one in the computer is a ide, so no luck there, but idk if the hardrive is bad, i could still make partitions on the hardrive when i booted with ubuntu from a CD, and i did successfully install XP to the hardrive....i just cant boot to it

It would have been better to let us know that this was a laptop in your initial post. I am going to go with Hughv in post #6, it sounds like you need a new hard drive.
