We are a Training Company and our students still need to use floppies, they aint dead yet but maybe MS are helping them to the grave with this subtle problem??? I can try the way you said but i tried the following: Changed SATA Device Operation to ATA instead of AHCI.I heard that it too works.

Please visit the conference and you’ll see the possibilities of better use of the highway. This slows the system down greatly. The USB floppy route was a dead end for me. Thanks for the great advice.

I needed a dual-boot, so I got the error listed above.

March 5, 2008 Ali Habach Please guys, i got to the bit where i browse for my drivers' folder but i just can't find it… :( I'm really in a hurry… These people want to rid their Gateways, HP's etc of the curse that is Vista and are finding it VERY tricky, as did I. as i recall, windows mode limits colors in dos-based apps and your vga colors are being expressed in ega terms (or something to that effect). http://webadapt.org/resolved/resolved-what-s-the-proper-way-to-set-up-a-win2k-file-server-for-win9x-pc-s.php I was using the latest beta version of nlite, so that may have something to do with it.

Same is true If I try and read a Disk from a computer other than mine.

October 24, 2007 Nikolas Phenomenon. Join our site today to ask your question. that it might be caused by a floppy disk seek in this this multi-gig firewired age is quite bizarre. I get cyclic redundancy error when trying to read a Disk on my machine or the drive runs forever and never quits.

I go to Fry's and was able to find the manager who had my MB originally tested and was found to be bad. One hour later, after using this fix, I am up and running. I soon relized that the floppy disk I had in the drive caused the computer to read DISK READ ERROR.
