formatting hard drive %*#!
Posted on 2000-03-16
I am trying to help a friend put a used system back together.The disk had been formatted and I am trying to get the cursor to move in DOS.(to load win98) The screen says Loading boot record from IDE-O....ok - but nothing happens. Does this take a long time to load? And the screen seems frozen, I can't get a cursor or get it to type anything in for commands. Nothing gets recognized- the cdrom or floppy. I told her she may need a new hard drive....Any suggestions on trying to put this system (out of a cyber cafe) back together would be greatly appreciated!Thanks, this site is great! Cindy Jes
