My buddy is building a machine with a 8KDA3J and we can not get his floppy\ndrive to work.\n\n1. It is not floppy disc. He has done multiple boot discs and they work\non his notebook which has floppy drive.\n\n2. It is not the floppy drive. he has bought a new one and it does not\nwork either.\n\n3. It is not the cable. He has tried 2 different cables and they both do\nnot work. He is using end connector (end with twisted cable). He has\nreseated the connector in mobo and floppy numerous times.\n\n4. The floppy controller is enabled in bios. He has set up the floppy to\nbe the first boot device.\n\nAt this point we think there might be a problem with mobo or there is some\nobscure setting in the bios that we are missing. He needs the floppy to\ninstall hard drive and SATA drivers when installing winXP.\n\nAny ideas?\n\nThanks!
