I get this too, I got MSI KT6 Delta motherboard.
Nate Lawson fixed this on freebsd -current a while back. In
src/sys/dev/fdc/fdc_isa.c,v 1.11 2004/08/20. Here is the log
"Remove a check that is too strict. With BIOSen that specify an
IO/ctl port of 0x3f2-0x3f5,0x3f7 the ports are not 7 bytes apart.
This should fix floppy probing on such systems. (We handle the case
of adjusting for a start of 0x3f2 -> 0x3f0 separately, although that
code should still be checked if there are still floppy problems for
Hope that helps to track it down.
