disk I/O Error on win98SE Reinstall
At work we use (ancient) socket 7 boxes that are on their last legs...
Had one doing random hard freezes, so I did an Fdisk & format. Rebooted & it wouldn't proceed past the BIOS POST-"Disk I/O Error". I think the PS may be flaky because it wouldn't recycle (with the main switch on the back of the case). It would just detect the vid card and stop-no POST no nada. Anyone have any ideas?
First thing I do is check the cords. Then things like reseating the memory, checking the CPU fan (they stop all too often on the older boxes), CMOS battery...all the little things. Then you can check for BIOS upgrades and/or make sure you enabled large block mode on your FDISK.
So many possibilities...so little patience!
Went through this just a few days ago... Check and make sure you have a GOOD, WORKING START UP BOOT DISK!!!!! I didn't drove me NUTS!! I thought I had a good one turns out I didn't!! After I got a good startup disk, went smooth as glass.
