You dont need a floppy drive for you computer to function (unless its 1984), just unplug it and see if your pc posts. I dont think it could do anything to hinder your pc from booting, but stranger things have happened.

I cannot think of a reason why a bad flopy drive would interfere with bootup. Have you tried just disconnecting the drive to see what happens?
