I have just finished installing WIN95.

I was running DOS before. I have a Quantum Fireball harddisk on 1040 MB. In my
DOS days i had a diskmamager driver software installed in order to be able to
access the whole HD without partitioning it. My BIOS can detect the correct HD
size.
Before installing Win95 i uninstalled the diskmanager SW. After uninstalling it
DOS was only able to see the first 528 MB (as expected).
After successfully installing WIN95, WIN95 are only able to see the first 528
MB of HD (this was NOT expected).
I have tried to run the detect hardware program from WIN95, with no luck.

Question:
How do i get WIN95 to see the whole HD up to 1040 MB?

You will not like this but..
In the bios reset to the LBA mode, or
Reinstall the disk manager via dos,  either way we are talking of reformating the HD, thus the loss of data..
You have to get by the 528 dos block first.
Win 95 will actually remove what it does not need as it loads..
