Non system disk error

Why in the hell, in the year 2002 AD, can we not have our Windows computers look at a floppy, boot using said floppy if it can, or ignore it and try to boot off the hard drive if it can't? Is that hard? Why does the system have to grind to a screeching halt?

At the very least the error message could make sense. Thousands of tech support hours could be saved if the error message suggested the user remove their floppy disk from the disk drive.
