Create a startup disk, via right-clicking on the floppy disk drive, selecting format, and checking the appropriate boxes. Insert the startup disk into your floppy drive, reboot, and at the prompt type fdisk. Follow the instructions for setting an active partition.

If your system refuses to start from the floppy disk, edit your BIOS and set the floppy disk drive as the first boot device.
