20GB Hard Drive in Win 98 SE


Recommended Posts

how did it go

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Mathew 4:19

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

Life insurance? you wont enjoy a penny!

Got the Program O.K. Thanks.

Booted the machine with the floppy, and it picked up the Hard drive O.K. says its a 20.48 GB.

 

Then it gives me options to partition it, and format it, but only to a total of 8.74 GB. Doh!

 

Good try, and thanks for the help, chesters.

 

Ive stripped the board out, and cannot find any identifying markings.

As The old Hard drive is corrupt, and wont let me re-install windows, I cannot run a diagnostic program to ascertain whose website to go to for a BIOS update.

 

I give up. As the machine is only worth about £50 in total, I will not waste any more time on it!

 

Thanks to all for the replies,
