After having Compaq send me a free new unit for a defective UBID one, I finally got a working IA-1 that can connect to the internet. I'm glad I tested my unit before taking the thing apart to flash the bios. The old unit would reboot after getting a carrier.
So I took the day off early and started gutting. Great work guys... reseting the bios was easy with prior posts.
I had to reinstall Windows 98SE in a dual boot mode onto my Windows 2000 machine in order to get RANISH, FDISK, and FORMAT to work.
I put the CF card into the reader and ran FORMAT F: /S (where F is my cf drive). System files were transfered to the CF.
The problem now is that like a previous thread, I can't get RANISH (2.40 or 2.41) or FDISK to recognise my USB Compact flash card reader (SDDR31 & Viking 128M CF). The DOS windows can access the contents of drive but partition utilities can't. I have tied:
1) Rebooting with the compact flash in the reader
2) installing newest drivers for the CF reader
3) running part.exe in a dos window then pressing F5 (both versions of RANISH)
4) running part.exe -d 3 in a dos window (both versions of RANISH)
Like the other user said, am I missing something?
1) install win95 or win98 (1st edition)
2) I have a Thinkpad and PC card CF reader (with NT4.0 on it) - maybe get dos to recognize the card
3) Try another CF reader or card
4) look for other utilities to make CF FAT 16
Thanks in advance... you can email me at LLIN@11111.net if you'd like.
