Floppy problem

I got 1.44 floppy and I can boot my system(Windows95) with
hard drive and floppy drive is recognized and readable and writeable but I can not boot up my system with floppy drive.
I once changed it with new floppy but the problem is still same.
Does anyone have any idea about this?
Thanks in advance.

Check your BIOS settings and make sure that you have the boot order as A:->C: and not C:->A:.  In the latter case, if a bootable OS is found on C: (i.e. your hard drive) it will never look at the floppy.

I know that.
I already set to seek "A" first.
However I always get "diskette failed(C0)"
As I said before, if I boot up with "C", "A" drive is recognized.

Daemon,
From an explorer window, right-click on the floppy drive icon, then click format.  Check the "Copy system files" box.
When finished, will computer then boot from that floppy?

Oh man, Ralph
I am not a novice about computer.
Actually I am majoring computer science.
I know how to make floppy bootable.
I upgraded my computer(just motherboard and cpu) by myself.
Suddenly, I got the problem which I can't boot with floopy but
floppy is r/writable once I boot up with "C" drive.

Daemon,
Sorry if I offended, but some people come here without knowing how to turn the computer on!
I couldn't tell from your question.  Please give us all the details you can so we might better assist you.

If:
     1) You have a known-good system floppy disk.
     2) The boot order is configured correctly.
     3) Drive is cabled and powered correctly.

..then the computer should boot!

If not, and you say you have replaced the drive, (known-to-be-good?) then I would suspect your new motherboard or floppy controller is the problem.
Regards,
Ralph

I think I have all 3 options.
Now, I also suspectmy my new motherboard or floppy controller.
If the floppy controller is the problem, then what can I do?
Just replace my new motherboard or ?
Thanks

It is possible to obtain another controller card for use in one of the system's bus slots.  They are very inexpensive.
You could then disable the built-in controller on the motherboard.
If I were you, I'd seek a replacement for the motherboard, though.  This may be a preview of things to come......
Jhance, what do you think?
Regards,
Ralph
