All the machines in question are MACHINE_NOT_WORKING flagged, so nothing is EXPECTED to work at all.
I'm unsure if properly configured floppy disks can be used on either of these machines.

What is the procedure you are using to even make A: or B: drive usable? Are you adjusting the BIOS to use the proper format/size floppies? Is the system booting from floppy or hard drive? Please give specific instructions and examples.

|Well, I tried to install Win98 some weeks ago in those machines, with a floppy disk. I've never could install it, but the floppy worked well.|
