Hi, Ibrahim.

a hardware issue with either the floppy disk

You are right!

I've been away for a day or two. Just checked my disks again and found that
I can create bootable floppies with another box of disks I have. They are:
MF - 2 HD. Double Sided High Density.

The disks which give me the error message are: MF 2DD. Double Sided Double
Density. Just right-clicking the drive with one of these disks in gives me
the egg timer and non opening of disk.

Obviously these disks are not suitable for my computer... Why is this?

Many thanks.
Kind Regards,
