Default Bootable floppies will not boot

I am trying to put Floppyfw on a spare machine. I have two, neither of them will boot. I've tried a floppy drive and cable from a machine that I know works on both boards, won't boot. Been up and down BIOS in both boards, everything I've seen related to FDD and boot order has been set to what I believe is correct. I've tried booting Floppyfw 1.0 and 2.0, Windows XP's version of MS-DOS (the one you can make from Format), some random Linux floppy distro, and a Windows 95 boot disk, none will work on these two machines, but all will work on 4 other machiens that are still in use.

P.S. The two boards I have are ep-5bvpxb (the board I'd perfer to use) and I think it's a proce55"0 (zero) or O (letter o)"r.
