OK I am running Win2K Server on my machines, and I could not find the MODE.COM file on my Win98 CD. I did find MODE.COM on my 2K serevr though and tried it. I copied it to teh HD and tried to boot the IO. Still getting the same screen. Please see
for the pic I poseted of what is happening.
So that I don't have to post anything else and take anymore of your time, here is what I have and have done:
V5 IO with Badflash BIOS (IO has never called home, modem is removed)
IMOD-3 with a 6 GIG IBM Travelstar HD (2nd one I have tried)
I set it up this way
Booted from a Win98 Boot Disk and ran FDISK
Setup a single 6 Gig Partition and made it active
Sysed the HD to make it bootable
(I did not copy any 98 or IO files to it b/c I wanted to make sure it wold boot into DOS b4 I wasted all that time transferring files just to possibly have to format it again)
Set IO BIOS to Auto on both the Primary and Secondary IDE channels, it sees both drives fine.
The link above shows what happens every time.
I copied MODE.COM from my 2K server system and the same screen appears..
I searched the FAQ and can't seem to find what the problem I'm having is. So many people just throw 98 on these things it and it runs.. my luck..
Please help fellas,I'm at Wits end and have my friend with his IO, 10G IBM, WinME setup laughing at me..(BTW he won't help)..
