    Default Hello, I saved this pII heavy rare notebook. And I got this erros. Please help.

    Hello,
    I just saved this rare Pentium II 266 laptop, and can't boot from all devices, it tells me this error messages.

    It's a Notebook computer model 8900m!!

    I think that floppy drive is well tested while system boots, it's a mechanical drive like the one in Macintosh classic.. and cd rom drive is working, HDD replaces with a 4g IBM one, and nothing.

    First silly question. Have you tried getting into the BIOS setup (SCU)? (ctrl alt S).
    Second silly question. Is the CMOS battery any good?

    You set it up and it still says that your floppy drive isn't installed?

    Does it access the floppy during boot? Is there perhaps a setting to enable/disable the floppy controller in one of the other menus? For example, on many BIOS setups, the choice of floppy drive and enabling the floppy controller are two entirely separate and independent choices.

    yes the floppy drive is enabled on bios, and it's initialized during boot, I can hear it.

    So how does one explain the first message "No bootable floppy drive 0 installed."

    Perhaps the laptop is saying that your floppy drive select jumper should be set to DS0 instead of DS1? Laptops don't always follow desktop conventions.
