I have recently bought a 2nd-hand hard-disk. I was unable to install WIN98SE via the target computer so i intsalled it on another computer with the hard-drive in it. It instllaed correctly and booted up in Windows.
I installed the hard-drive into the compaq and the compaq starts up registers the new hard-drive and then is boots into windows only to find that it cannot execute the command.com. I boot into Flonix (live-cd linux) and explored the hard-drive and it on it was the command.com file. It starts fine on the other computer.
Compaq Deskpro 4000 6233X. I had a 10gig before and it reported a 1790 error so i got this 1 instead.
I have the latest BIOS.
Sorry about the small amount points i only have the max available.
