The reason why you are getting this fatal error is because you may have a computer with a floppy drive. in the old days, old computers came with floppy drives, these drives usually had the operating system install and the computer would boot from floppy drives.. I still have my 5 floppy drives to boot windows 2000. Anyway, mother boards came installed by default to first boot from floppy drives and then from the hard drive and then from the CD ROM.
