can only load win /d:v to get 386 mode.. also cmos error
Posted on 1997-05-13
Consequential to losing a partition due to an ultrastor 24f scsi error(writing to a >1gig drive), I have rebuilt the partition using norton rescue disk. However, I can only boot windows 3.1 into standard mode, or into 386 mode with the command line switch win /d:v. It loads REAL quick this way, but I know it's only a patch for some sort of bigger problem. Any idea why I can't load windows normally?
486/66 32 ram
2.1 gig fireball hd (d: (h: only under NT... FAT))
old 211 meg hd (j: only under NT... FAT)
scsi external 135 ezdrive
win NT 3.51
ALSO I've been getting a volatile boot up error:'CMOS not functional' or 'cmos displat type mismatch'
Any ideas here?
