OK, I know this subject is very common, but I've never seen this case that's
happening to me. I've taken a old board for a Pentium100, and put almost
everything to work, except the floppy. I've tried everything I know, like
check the cables, change the cables, change the drive, change the disks
I was using, disable the onboard interface, put a offboard controller,
check the jumpers for A and B, and the effect is always the same: The computer
recognize the drive but when you enter DOS, it says: Drive not Ready. I
put the disks to boot, and they don't boot.
What hell is going on?

Have you tried the floppy on another computer to see if it works there or not. Just an idea.

Turn the floppy cable around , it's different to the others , 1 dos'nt go next to the power .
Make sure the bios boot is set to ac , not ca .

we are getting an error message with #40 while installing the floppy drive

some things to look for:
1. floppy cable on backwards
2. check in bios (standard cmos setup?) to see
that the right floppy drive is selected
3. are you using a new or known good floppy cable
4. have you tried the floppy drive in another pc
to see if the problem is with the floppy drive
