After changing the boot order in the setup my travelmate does not
recognise the hard disk. It does boot from the CD (UBCD4WIN) but still
will not recognise the HD (or USB key)
I think I have to flash the BIOS - there are flashing utilities
available for DOS and Windows but I need guidance for that.
Any help would be appreciated
Re: Acer travelmate 292LMi does not recognise Hard disk
If your hard disk was recognized properly before you changed the boot
order, it should still be recognized. Flashing the Bios is a last resort
solution, assuming there is a new firware available. I would not do that.
I suggest you reset the Bios to its original configuration (there
certainly is such an option in your bios menu) and see if the hd is this
time recognized. Sometimes, the bios settings can get corrupted and
resetting them to the factory configuration cures that. Once the HD is
recognized, change back the settings to what you want.
