Re: Hard Drive wont boot
Try to get hold of a win98SE startup floppy,
and check with fdisk (enable large files,fat32),
and tell it to create a primary partition,
using all space.
This will show you what the bios will support.
One of muy oldest computers will not go past 2GB,
a somewhat les old one stops at 32 GB.
Short of a bios upgrade, you cannot change
Anyway,create the biggest partition it allows,
then start installing windows.
You could insert your disk in anohter WIN
computer,and format the disk,and copy the i386
directory from the install CD to it.
Put then the disk in your computer, and install
from that directory.
