Have a computer that has been rebuilt through time by a family owned dealership. It's a 233 Mhz machine which was Windows 95 then upgraded to Windows 98.
Just had them add a new Hard Drive, an IBM large GB IDE (more than 20GB, unclear as to exact size). They copied all my drive stuff to this new drive and advised that they couldn't leave the new IBM IDE HD as one partition because I didn't have a full Windows 98, but only a Win95 to Win98 upgrade, so they created more than one partition.
Does this make any sense, and can you tell me what should be done instead? Additionally, they failed to reattach my other drives, including the A, B etc., so clearly I must return to get all these things fixed/resolved.
I did want to get background on this and request COMMENTS please so that I can award the most helpful participant easily with points when the help is assessed.
MORE INFORMATION and CHANGES IMPLEMENTED:I will be unable to get more than what follows until I return. Here's everything else that has transpired and where things are now; hoping this will help. I had them do other upgrades, but still problems.
