Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 64 bit 9.04 in prep for a dual boot. My computer now tries to boot off a floppy (I think). "Floppy disk(s) fail (40)" then at the bottom of the screen "press f1 to continue, f2 to enter setup." F1 brings me to a normal boot process and I log in, everything works fine.

I went into bios and disabled floppy as a boot option; it was second in priority. That didn't work. I don't even have a floppy drive, so it's not like I have a corrupt diskette in there. Is there an option in bios to fix this that I am missing? (resetting to defaults is what caused this, so doing it again will do nothing.)

Yea, I am positive it isn't there; I pretty much made it custom. I will double check I disabled on the device list if managed to get on there.
