Insert it in the floppy drive and power on the PC. It should boot to the Boot Menu.

BTW, can I ask what your trying to do from a Boot Menu?

I did try that, but it did not go to a boot menu. Is there anything else that I need to do?

I am trying to re-format my hard drive and have been up all night with this and I am SO frustrated!!!

HELP! PLEASE!:confused:

You need to get into the BIOS setup and be sure the Boot Sequence is "A, C, D". The floppy drive, letter A:, needs to be before the C: and D: drive in the sequence.

Do you know how to get into Setup for the BIOS? Right when you power on your PC, on the screen you should see instructions on getting into Setup. It's usually done by pressing F1 or DEL.

Once you get it to boot to the floppy, let us know and we'll post the steps you need to follow to fdisk, format and reinstall Windows to an empty drive.

Or if you need help getting into the BIOS setup, let us know the make and model of the PC.

Once your in the BIOS setup, the Boot Sequence is usually under the section "CMOS Setup" but the wording of the section can differ. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight the section and press enter.

Once your in the CMOS setup, look for something like "Boot Sequence" or "1st Boot Device", "2nd Boot Device", etc.. and set the first to A the second to C and the third to the CDRom drive. Once your done press the ESC key. You should be prompted to Save the changes. Be sure you save the changes.
