Alright - here's the problem. I had a 4.2Gb hard disk with Win 95 with all the patches and power tools and IE5. I recently got a new 17.2Gb harddrive and everything works fine except, I can't use 8Gb of the 17.2.
The hard disk has around 2100 cylinders in LBA mode and over 4000 in LARGE mode. I am being told that FAT32 can only go upto the 1024th cylinder. Is there any way that I can get WIN95 to recognise NTFS or HPFS or alternatively, is there any way I can get FAT32 to work beyond the 1024th cylinder.
My other problem is that partitions can't be more that around 2Gb. As I mentioned before, the primary hard disk (FAT32) is 4.2Gb (I can also have partitions of over 2Gb) so why can't I have partitions of over 2Gb on this new hard disk.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
