Floppy Drive Seek
Causes the BIOS to search for floppy disk drives at boot time. When enabled, the BIOS will activate the floppy disk drives during the boot process: the drive activity light will come on and the head will move back and forth once. First A: will be done and then B: if it exists. When disabled, this seek will not be done. Older PCs always did this seek; on newer machines it can be disabled to speed up the boot process.
Note: This setting will
not affect the boot sequence, and vice-versa; if
the boot sequence starts with A: the system will still try to boot from the floppy disk
even if this is disabled, and if the boot sequence starts with C: the system will still
look to C: even if floppy disk seek is enabled.
