I've been helping someone with their system. I can't figure out why the HDD is not seen in the BIOS (but the 2 CDR drives are seen)and it boots up to Win 98. We flashed the BIOS from a ver.A07 to A11...didn't make any difference with this issue. The system is a P3 500Mhz with Intel 440BX AGPset (more specs on the system are at... http://docs.us.dell.com/docs/systems/dkub/specs.htm)
I have no idea where to go after updating the BIOS, resetting defaults & NVRAM.
