If you are trying to boot to a blank floppy disk then nothing will happen. Doesn’t necessarily need to be a hard drive. If you find they don’t have enough capacity for your needs, you can use a free program available on the same web site as a larger hard drive’s brand to copy the entire data contents of a hard drive to a larger hard drive.
