    Error when floppy drive removed

    I converted about a 4 year old gateway into a carputer and removed the floppy drive. The only problem is that when I boot up, BIOS gives me an error about not detecting the floppy drive which I then have to hit a key to bypass and continue booting into XP pro (very annoying). Can anybody help? I already tried disabling the floppy in XP but it does the same crap and even detects new hardware (i.e the floppy drive) when window starts. thanx

    Disable the floppy in the bios if it has an option. I have the same problem with the ps2 mouse on an aptiva. Using USB mouse but it doesn't detect a ps2 so it's ****y. No option on the aptiva, good luck.
