Just to add a couple of other suggestions - sometimes I've found simply pressing the F6 at the appointed time and then pressing Enter when prompted for a floppy disk, makes the system look deeper into its Cabinet files for an appropriate driver. Usually, it finds one.

Other times, I've gone to the trouble of making a floppy and even that doesn't work. In those circumstances, you need to go into BIOS and change the AHCI setting to IDE.
