System is pentium 133 with win95 ver 4.00.950. Award BIOS. HDD 1.5GB and HDD 248MB. Sound blaster sound card which also drives the CD. ID on mother board is a MAGITRONIC P/N 1A-9597JV2-A.Also printed on MB is GA586VX REV 3.36.
I have been to MS and downloaded reccomended updates.
I put a DOS6.22 boot disk in floppy and it boots up fine.I can change to C: or D: no problem. This tells me my hardware is not the problem.
Leave disk out; let win95 boot; try to access floppy and get error "device is not accesible".
I go to system and select disk drives. There is no drive assigned to the floppy. I can only select from E and above.
I have removed and reinstalled the floppy controller from win 95.
I have also loaded REMIDEUP.exe and RMM2UPD.EXE. No help there.
The only clue I have is that on SYSTEM/IDE controllers there is a PRIMARY IDE contoller with the YELLOW ! and I can't clear the error.I am thinking this could be related.
MB has the floppy and 2 IDE contollers onboard. Secondary IDE controller is disabled. I have tried disabling the primary controller and using the secondary controller. SAME THING.
I have also tried the system with the sound card/CD removed.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFLULLY I DON'T WANT SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT I HAVE ALREADY TRIED.
