Now the bleeping thing will not stop trying to access the floppy drive every 30 seconds or so.

Short of disabling the floppy in BIOS, then enabling it only when I need to use the drive - how do I make Windows 10 ignore the drive except when I want it to, when *I* click on the drive in Explorer? It's like a kid with a new toy that it refuses to stop playing with.
You could disable it in the Device manager rather than the BIOS. That makes it easier to enable when needed.
