Amiga Boot Problem

Hey all. Just got an A 2500 and here is my problem. It has a 100mb hard drive in it. when I go to boot it tells me it cant boot from the HD. Thats ok as there is nothing on it, but it seems to go straight to the HD to boot not the floppy. How can I get the floppy to be the first boot device?

Thanks

I'm not sure if this is the same as 1200's and 4000's but press both mouse buttons when you turn the Amiga on. It should bring up a boot menu

Unless someone set the partition's boot priority too high, it would boot from floppy if you just stick it in and reboot or power on.
