I have a P3 500 mhz pc with 128Mb SDRAM with win98, which i purchased 2 years before, recently i purchased a new 40 Gb harddisk but the BIOS didnt suppot it, it onlty supported upto 32Gb.
this is my BIOS configuatio with chipset & motherboard
BIOS Manufacturer : Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG
BIOS ID : 09/20/1999-693-596-W977E-P6BAT-MEC-00
BIOS Date : 09/20/99
BIOS OEM Signon : P6BAT-ME Ver 3.4a 09/20/1999
BIOS ROM Size : 256K
Chipset : VIA 82C691 rev 34
Mother Board : P6BAT-ME
So i updated the BIOS with the latest release & the motherboard now supported the 40 GB harddisk. so i partationed it into 4 drives each drive of nearly 10 Gb.
But now the problem i get is whenever the i copy data in the last drive & the total size (including first 3 partationed size weather
completely or partly filled) go beyond 32 Gb my C drive gets corrupt &
& it says some media error, the only choice ui have is to format the C drive & reinstall everything again.
i have tried using another 40 Gb harddisk but the result is same, so i am sure there is no problem with the harddiak
so please can any one tell me what is wrong & what must i do to solve the problem.
