I would check the cables.

This error occurs when the Floppy drive is enabled in the BIOS but it cannot be detected.
If the cable isn't the problem then I would suggest disabling the floppy in the Bios as it is probably a motherboard floppy controller issue. Ensure the cables are seated well in the connector and are in the proper orientation.

Either bad cable or bad drive:

As Sparkmaker said, disable it in bios or get new floppy drive.

did you hook up the floppy cable correct? the twisted wires come near the floppy.
also, when you boot the system, your floppy light should come on for a couple of seconds, then turn otf. If it stays on, you misconnected the cable.
and check if the correct floppy type is enabled in the bios

When you boot your PC, check the floppy power led; if it's never lit, your floppy power connector is faulty; if it's lit all the time, your floppy data cable is reversed. If you just want to bypass this, disable the floppy startup seek option in your machine's BIOS

If you have put a known working floppy drive and known working cable, then that leaves the connection point or controller on the motherboard.

Is there a particular reason that the floppy is needed?
