80gb hard drive problem
i have 80gb ibm hard drive (IC35L080AVV07-0 120GXP serries i think) and because my machine was with old bios, i have installed disk manager 9.55 to be able to use my hdd.
it works fine when i boot from my disk.
now i have newer machine whit bios that recognizes hdd properly. and there is another disk that i use as primary.
I want to use my 80 gigs IBM hdd as "warehouse" just store info on it.
The problem is that I can access the disk big disk only if I boot from it ( . I dont know what to do. I dont want to boot every time from it because i have another primary disk.
Bios recognizes it correct. But when i boot windows i have only one letter c: (this is the another disk wich i use as primary). There should be d: and e: 40 gigs each.
in device manager there are two physical disks. but logicaly only one is used.
The ibm is parted on two fat32 partitions each 40 gigs.
I tryed changing the jumper position (there is jumper for changing 15 or 16 heads mode) but it didnt help. I also with another os - first it was win98 next winxp.. it didnt help too.
i went to a friend to try to connect my ibm to see if on his machine will be the same problem.. and the result were same.
No matter from the jumper possitions on big ibm drive, no matter the OS i use .. my 80gigs are invisible when i boot from another drive..
How could i fix it ?! do i have to uninstall disk manager from master boot record of the disk. do i have to format it againg?
thanks in advance
youll have to get that disk manager off there
boot up from the floppy of the mfr of your drive. it should find the drive okay and then youll have to explore options and figure out how to get rid of it. its there ( the get rid of option ) its just usually a layer or two deep, in options or something similar
i would say run fdisk /mbr from a command prompt but if bios is not seeing drive than that wont work
if you dont still have original floppy, you can get it from the mfr website
You can't move the drive to another motherboard and expect it to work anyway. Get your important data off of the drive and Zap it:
You have to unzip that and read the README.
