setting up HD
Posted on 1998-10-08
Need help, I just replaced the MB and HD,(award bios
both are used (not new), the hd is from my old Compaq, The guy that took it off the Compaq said win95 and everything is still on it, I don't know.
I tried to use the win95 set up disc, "can't install win95,
computer does not have a HD, your HD is not funtioning correctly, or your HD requires a special device driver".
The HD is a Quantum. I had that HD replaced with a bigger Quantum a year ago, so I have a flopy disc that came with the bigger Quantum, "ontrack disk manager", if it is of any use.
Do I need to config the HD with award bios before it will work? Do I have the ribbon turned wrong way?
I want to do this now, that computer is setting next to this one, that computer is a no name, compaq has nothing to do with this.
so please don't answer if you're leaving soon, thanks.
