boot failed when starting up 6.2 installer with floppy disk
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:24 EDT
When I started up RedHat 6.2 installer with the floppy which was attached
to the package, the installer stopped with the message as follows;
Boot failed:please change disks and press a key to continue
There are no other disks to proceed the installation.
In fact, if I use CD-ROM to boot the installer, it worked fine.
After the installation (with CD-ROM), I checked floppy device by mounting
some floppy disks, and it worked fine.
I suspended that it might be a error of boot.img that I got, so I made
another boot floppy by boot.img in the CD-ROM; it caused the same error as
I downloaded boot.img from the following URL and made another floppy.
but it changed nothing.
My machine is
COMPAQ presario 3571
Please let me know what can cause this.

This is most certainly a bad floppy drive, controller, or media. The boot image
the CDROM uses to boot is
practically identical to the floppy image.
