    Reset the BIOS, if that doesn't work then put the BIOS flash floppy in the drive and start it up with the left shift key down and it may be able to reflash it, assuming it has that feature built in.

    Buy an external floppy and see Tarkus' post.

    edit: would an external even work? I just realized i've never used an external anything on a failed system
