hi rtang626,

Try and disable the floppy drive on the VM settings.
One of your programs is checking for a floppy drive; I'd guess antivirus. You may have an option to tell it not to do that.

Try disabling the floppy controller in your Device Manager.

If that doesn't work, see if you can disable it in the bio
