Win 98 upgrade is unable to detect drives.
Posted on 1998-07-23
I am upgrading a friends computer to Win98.
After I ran the upgrade install, windows could no longer detect the CD Rom or floppy disk.
The entries in the Config file for the CD are correct, and installing a new controller didn't work either.
I tried reinstalling the DOS drivers also, and it just won't let me access the CD anymore.
As for the floppy, this system has a 5.25 floppy drive as well as a 3.5, I disconnected the 5.25 before I ran the install.
Windows still detected the 5.25 instead of the 3.5 and has designated it as drive A, so now the 3.5 doesn't work in windows at all, and I can't install windows CD drivers. Unless I can find them on a 5.25 floppy.
What do I need to do to get windows to recognize the correct drives?
I was really suprised that the plug n play didn't autodetect all of this properly.
