Win7Pro w/8GB mobo is Gigabyte 870A-UD3, CPU is AMD Phenom II X6 1075T. Guests are MS-DOS 6.2 and MS-DOS 6.22. Multiple error situations. Both guests crash with error message: FATAL: Int13_diskette_function: read error. Same happens with USB Floppy drive.

I've replaced the internal Diskette drive but get the same results. I can't operate these guests without diskette support.

Please help.

Adding, this same error happens when trying to boot the NetWare 6.5 SP8 install CD (NW65OSSP8a.ISO). But ONLY if you have "Floppy Device 0"! If you change to "Floppy Device 1", then the error goes away if the device is "empty". For device 0, you have to stick an image in it (for NetWare, recommended fd32e.img, see Ticket #9422). Removing the Floppy controller altogether works around the problem.

Confirmed on 4.0.12. Have not tried 4.1.0.
