Unable to DETERMINE CD-ROM Drive
Posted on 1998-08-25
I just put together a new computer from scratch, and I was trying to use a legacy Win95 OS from a Packard Bell system that I already have, the Packard Bell CD has imprinted on it "can only be used in origanal Packerd Bell computer". I was able to use the boot disk to FORMAT the Hard Drive and then boot to C drive. I then loaded the drivers for the new CD-ROM which is a Takaya 16x. During the install of the CD-ROM Software and after I gave it the dir for installation (C:\TAKAYA it gave me this message, MSCDEX is not found (please input the drive and directory name) I entered D, after which the message read Installation Complete.
My problem is, I put in the Legacy "BOOT DISC and CD-ROM for Win95" and softboot the PC and I got the message "Unable to determine CD-ROM Drive" so I Aborted. While I was in C Drive I tried to switch to D: drive and I got the message " Invaled Drive Specification.
My IDE CD-Rom is Slave to my IDE HHD and it is reconized in BIOS as such.
Question "How do I get my CD-ROM working"????????
