Go to your bios (hit f1, f2 or del on boot) then use the arrow keys to move the selector to the auto detect text, click it and the drive will be found. Now boot normally with a boot disk and run fdisk.

What brand and model is your computer?  Also, what type and version is the BIOS in your computer?  I'll better be able to walk you through the specific steps to re-detect your hard drives with that information.

Go to http://www.bootdisk.com and download the DOS bootdisk, use it and you should be able to run fdisk, if not try the W95a disk <- make sure it is the a ver.

you said the in the bios the primary and secondary say none and you tryed seting to auto and it still dont work
ok set them to auto and save and exit then use the boot disk that compmania told you to go make at  www.bootdisk .com
the fact that it was saying wrong dos version at first means all you need is a bootdisk of the right version
follow compmania's instructions .....James
