32 bit protected-mode disc driver problem !!!
Posted on 2003-02-22
I have been troubleshooting my son's dell comp(xpsr450 pent.II)and I came to the point where if I disable the primary ide controller it will will run, except C drive will go in MS-DOS compatability mode.So I put in a Promise Ultra TX2100 controller for the c-drive.I thought that would fix it,but no.Now the only way I can run it is if I disable 32 bit protected-mode disc drivers in the troubleshooting window.What would cause this to happen
the new controller seems fine. I had problems installing drivers for mobo that is why I went this route.
