Win95 and Hard drive setup problem
Posted on 1999-12-04
I have an older Sony computer.. 233MHz. I just bought a new Western Digital 20 gig hard drive Ultra ATA 66
I tried to install it using the disk that the HD came with, and with Fdisk.. but when i create partitions with either and then try to install Win95 from the CD, it gives me erros.
Windows errors and says it has found compressed drives on the hard drive or disk cache in memory.. and that these need to be remedied first. But neither of those is possible, because the drive is brand new with four 5GB partitions. It says you can continue with setup anyway.. then when i do, i get an error and says "if you have HPFS or WinNT partitions.. you have to do something else" and "if you have LANtastic or SuperStar..do something else"...
but i do not have either of these...
is this a problem with the sony motherboard? or the 20 gig hard drive?
