Hard drive installation problem
Posted on 1998-02-16
Helped a friend install a 1.2 gig Quantum fireball hard drive on his system, a 486dx4-100. When his old drive, a 210 meg Connor, was set to master, the system wouldn't recognize the new drive, even though the Quantum jumper was on slave and the Connor on master. When the Quantum was set on master, set-up quickly recognized both and showed the correct settings.
Only problem, the operating system (Win95) is on the Connor, and we couldn't get the system to read it -- kept saying 'no operating system present.'
What's the next step? We thought of installing win95 to the Quantum, but it's on cd, and the driver is on the Connor! We are stumped!
