Why do I have to click F1 to proceed to login during Windows boot?

Why do I see F1 option to continue for log in at the time of starting Windows? Can I fix it in CMOS setting?

    before I get the F1 to continue it says it can't find master HD or master CD drives. Both are there and working and computer boots after clicking F1.

    Hi Biswananda,

    Did you manage to fix the issue? What about the recommendation from Nabin, tried it?

    If floppy boot is not necessary for your PC, you can disable floppy seek, remove boot from floppy to avoid pressing F1 during OS boot.

    at what point exactly do you have to click F1, e.g. is this after the memory check?
    Are there any comments or error messages before you are asked to click F1?
    What version of Windows are you booting?
