|Win9x drive isssues, booting probs, new IO (modified 0 times) ||Thesexecutioner|
|So, I recently got an IO off of ebay. Also, I got a fan/HD mount kit and the v5.40a BIOS. I got Midori to run seamlessly, but since I have a piece-of-crap microsoft wi-fi card and want to play music from my IO, that didn't help much. After a lot of effort, I got FREEDOS to run on my hard disk. However, I've had incredible amounts of difficulty getting any copy of windows to install.|
WinME freezes up after the first stage, same with 98. 2000 and XP I have to set up on my desktop, and they tell me that 'NTDLR is missing' when I try to boot the drive on my IO. I've tried setting up 98 on my desktop and have gotten it to work perfectly, but when I put the drive in the IO it tells me either "Invalid system disk" or "Disk I/O error". I know that there's probably a single BIOS setting or group of settings I'm missing, but I cannot figure it out. I saw earlier threads, and was able to progress further in 98 setup by setting my drive to 'LBA', but none of the other suggestions have helped.
What do you think my problem could be?
