I have a Sharp pc9300-d Laptop. Since i have installed Win98 SE over the top of Win95 the floppy shows up as a 51/4 inch floppy drive in windows. I checked the setting in CMOS and it shows up correctly as a 3 1/2" floppy but soon as it goes into windows it shows up as a 5 1/4. I have removed the floppy controller from device manager and restarted but it reinstalls the 5 1/4. Help.

i guess did you enable two types of floppy in your bios. I am assuming that you have an award bios here, so the configuration for the cmos is basically for awartd only however the thing is still the same.

From the cmos setting did you enable two driver together. You might have an option in the standard cmos setup whereyou can define your drive. Select "1.44 Mb 3 1/2" for drive A and not install for drive B
