    Floppy (XP Pro)

    OK. how can I get this Drive A to work again?Remember I let Partition Magic Re-Map A to B because it kept saying it was in MS Dos mode (see other thread}. It will read the floppy from the B position but I can;t get it to boot from floppy.How do I trace this thing down and fix it? Can I boot up in Dos mode and reformat? And will it put the floppy back to A if I do?

    Well I went into BIOS enabled (swap floppy drive)Changed my floppy to the B drive under BIOS . Re Booted And it came back up showing A Drive with my Floppy Disk Drive.Also I can boot up from the floppy as If it was still under (A Drive) In BIOS. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> But it will only work like that as long as I have (Swap Floppy Drive) enabled. Another words it works just like new . But I can;t use the (A Drive Position) under BIOS. <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> So I fixed the problem as long as I pretend I never had an A Drive position under Bios . You tell me! <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>
