slave system does not see it. When I make it a master the best it will
do is bring up the Windows log and stay there for ever. If I wait long
enough and mash a lot of key I get three messages saying I am missing
files. But this does me no good because I cant format use FDISH. I
just cant get access to the drive. I have tried NORTON, MAXTOR drive
install, backup floppy, boot disk message I get back is wrong dos
version. I believe that one message I received from NORTON was that a
table defining characteristic of the hard drive was bad. Trying to use
FDISK /MBR but I just cant get access to the drive. Yes I have been
trying for hours and hours to fix this problem. No happy results!!.
Would it make any difference if I put the slave on the other controller
and make it a slave there,e.g., ATA controller has Master on one cable
and cd and slave drive on the other cable?. Yes I am just guessing. I
will post this on MPW setup, and AC hardware not sure about win 98
listing. I am really out of ideals.
Thanks in advance. WIN98SE.
Re: Stuch Hard drive
Well I have tried that but I get a messages that says Command.com is
missing. Still no access to the hard drive even id the bios is set to
floppy first (as Initization). I will try again but the problem is that
for whatever reason I just cant noy get access to the hard drive. But I
do get a windows logo..but that it. Well try the floppy again. Thanks

Well I did make a win start up disk. Tried it again with the same
results system will not allow me access to A: If I both without the
floppy I get Win LOGO. If I wait long enough windows logo goes away and
I get the C: prompt but no matter what I do after that I cant get access
to A: or C. for your information startup disk has many files including
Command.com. I would have pasted then her but I am not sure that helps.
