Hard Drive not recognized by BIOS - How??
Posted on 1999-01-24
I have a Maxtor 7 gig hard drive that is partitioned using Maxtors proprietary MaxBlast Software. It is made into three partitions. I would like to install Linux on the third partition which I can format to either FAT or FAT32. I have downloaded all of the Red Hat 5.2 linux install files (300+ mg) and I have created boot disks. The boot disks wil not recognize the hard drive and allow me to do any reformatting. Does anyone have any suggestions here. I am running windows 98 on the first partition and have a lot of data on the second. There is nothing on the third partition and it can be deleted. I cannot lose any of this data...
