I'm working on a computer with the "HD is using MS-DOS Compatibility Mode" message in Control Panel/System/Performance/File system tab
Computer: P200, 32 MB RAM, WIN95, 2.1 GB HD.
The following observations pertain to this issue using MS Knowledge Base for guidance:
No conflicts in Device Manager for HD Controller.
"Disable Protected Mode Drivers" unhecked in Control Panel/Performance/File System/Troubleshooting tab. All other boxes unchecked.
No special load drivers commands in Config.sys.
esdi_506.pdr protected mode driver is present and loaded sucessfully according to Bootlog.txt.
Bootlog.txt does show load fail for:
Load Failure Code is 0002
"Unit number 02 going through real mode drivers". Same message for units 03 and 04.
Would appreciate next steps to determine cause of problem.
