All machines boot to HD first.
Most of the machines have CA (Roadrunner variety). But one, the sneakernet machine has another AV brand.
Common links: Linksys router intranet at firehouse (10 computers). Second Linksys router system at my house (2 computers). I use Logmein Pro to access one from the other.
Everything has worked beautifully until a few days ago. Then the sneakernet machine owner brought a floppy in again, as he has been doing successfully for years, and tried to read it on an operating XP Pro SP3 firehouse machine. The BSOD with message showed up instantly and the system rebooted. After floppy removal and reboot completion, the machine acted completely normal. That person then tried the same floppy in another networked XP Pro machine in the firehouse. Same result. Much head scratching!!
I then tried to do some floppy reads at home with various floppies, some with data and some blank. They all gave exactly the same error and BSOD.
Then, I booted my HP Pavilion Laptop in Safe mode. The USB connected TEAC floppy drive was able to read floppies normally.
After that, I rebooted the laptop in normal fashion. The BSOD and error showed up again when I tried the floppy read.
I am having a hard time coming up with something that is file related on all the machines. Can you suggest any potential common factors?
Thanks for any suggestions.
