KT7A Raid Motherboard - 3.5" floppy

By devey ·
I have just installed a KT7A Raid MB w/1gb TB processor. Brand new, tested, 1.44 3.5" floppy. Will not boot from floppy even though the boot sequence is set correctly in the CMOS. Any time I try to access the 3.5 it states that the disk is not formated or not installed. All disks tried work fine in other machine. I have switched cables, drives, CMOS settings, NOTHING! Also the system will not power down using windows shut down. Tried all CMOS interfaces with APM, NOTHING! Don't know if it's a bad MB or if the problems are somehow related.

You did not say which virsion of windows you are using but it sounds like 98. Did the mainbord setup book tell what kind of floppy drive to use? Some new boards only take the large format floppy drives. Is there more then one floppy connector on theboard and did you try both. If so the board is the problem. You sound like you know what you are doing but is the floppy drive light on all the time? If so rotate the cable and reconnect it.

i have the exact same motherboard and my floppy works fine-floppy drives do go bad, swap out the floppy drive with a different one and see if it works--if it does your floppy drive is bad and you need to replace it.
