Floppy drive installed on startup dont have one?

Hello, I started up my PC today and was told in a little balloon that my Floppy drive was being installed, the only thing is I have never had one that I know of on my custom build PC. I went to My Computer and it is listed next to my Cd-ROM drives. Whats going on?

Hello Twofiveuk,

To remove this, you would need to boot up to your BIOS settings and disable the Floppy Drive setting in the CMOS section.

Hope this helps,

How create bootable USB stick/hard drive without floppy installed
I am surprised I didnt see this as a sticky. I have some apps (diagnostic) utilities that only run on floppy or via CD ROM. I would like to "copy" or create a bootable USB stick and run them. How can I accomplish making a bootable USB thumb drive that will allow me to emulate a floppy?
