Possible reasons:

# Your Windows installation has become damaged
# Your HDD is not connected properly
# Your PC never had Windows or any OS installed in the first place

I am shocked and suprised that the first post in this thread didn't say "remove the floppy disk you've left in there" :frown:

It's not that I didn't entirely forgot the floppy thing. I didn't recall clearly what happens system tries to boot from a non-bootable floppy. I guessed it skips the floppy and tries other devices for booting, like the case of non-bootable CD-ROM in a CD drive. :frown:

That's what I was going to suggest because your BIOS has the first boot device set to floppy and when there is a floppy in without boot files, you'll show this message.

Normally now, we set the first boot devices to the CDROM, because OS now install right from the CDROM. Back in time, boot disk were necessary to install OS.

But, if you need diagnostic tools, such as memtest , you need to set the floppy as first boot, because if it is set after the HDD, it will always boot the HDD first, if the OS is installed.

Go into bios, and set the hdd as the first boot device. It will save a few seconds every time you boot.
If you ever do want to run a dos prog, like memtest86, you can always change it back, for when you need it.
