I did more testing and this issue also occurs when I disable floppy interface
in the BIOS on my Dell Dimension 8200 without disabling the floppy drive
itself. The BIOS reports a Floppy 0 seek failure, but it continues booting then
ReactOS hangs on floppy.sys. When I change the floppy interface to read-only or
on then floppy.sys loads correctly. It seems that if the BIOS displays a floppy
warning then floppy.sys crashes. Maybe heavily dependent on BIOS? I think it is
a problem in the seek code that causes it to bug check because it never seeks
the floppy drive before it crashes.
