Can't get HD to boot
Posted on 1998-01-25
I'm trying to setup an old computer for a friend. It's an AST Advantage 486 SX/25 with a Quantum ELS 170 MB HD. I got it to boot fine from the floppy, then I FDISK'ed it as the primary DOS partition (active) and formatted the drive. I then copied over the system using the SYS command, but then when I try to let it boot up from the HD it just writes "LI" on the screen after the initial system check. It then freezes and won't respond to the keyboard.
When I boot from the floppy I seem to have full access to the HD, so why won't it boot from the HD?
