HP Vectra QS16 Not recognizing setup disk.

I know this is a long shot but here it goes...I have an HP Vectra QS16 that recently had its cmos battery changed requiring the HP setup disk to configure the BIOS settings. The setup floppy disk is in the floppy drive, and the yellow drive light illuminates, but the message, "Insert system disc in drive and press any key to continue." is displayed every time I press any key to continue. I test the setup diskette in another machine and it booted from it so I know it's not the floppy disk. I even removed the floppy drive and tested it in another computer and it worked too, so I know it's not the floppy drive. Anyways, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
