Explanation
The diskette drive contains a non-system diskette.
Replace it with a system diskette and press F1.
The diskette is either not formatted or defective.
Replace it with a system diskette and press F1.

is not formatted. Insert a system diskette, press
F1, and format the hard disk as described in your
operating system manuals.
The hard disk may be defective. Press F1 to retry.
Make sure that the drive is correctly specified
with the BIOS Setup utility. If the problem

up the data held on the defective hard disk and
try reformatting it.
This may indicate a fault in the diskette or hard
disk drive, or perhaps a damaged system diskette.

possible. Make sure that the Startup Devices
option is correctly specified with the BIOS Setup
utility. If the problem persists, consult your
