Dell Dimension E520

This question is not answered

Everytime I boot my pc I get a message saying:- Floppy diskette seek failure Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility. When I press the F1 key Windows starts normally. I have  tried to disable the Floppy Drive and boot from the HD, but I am getting this message:- NO BOOT DEVICE AVAILABLE - STRIKE F1 TO RETRY BOOT, F2 FOR SETUP UTILITY.

The Boot Sequence Order BIOS settings on my PC shows that the Hard Drive is NOT PRESENT.
Is this the reason why my PC wont boot up from the HD?

How can I change this?

  • It's not the boot order screen in the bios that needs to be changed. It's on the Drives section page in the bios. You can disable the floppy drive controller, save the settings and reboot. Setup Options are HERE. <ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>

    That page in the bios also has the SATA drives.
