In my computer>properties I have the message drive d: , f: are using ms-dos compatibility mode file system. I have been to the Microsoft website and read the troubleshooting ms-dos mode page and related links. I have looked in the registry for the “no IDE” value. I have checked the iosub.sys file for the hard disk and hard disk controller device drivers and found them to be present. I am not sure how to extract and replace the disk and disk controller device driver to find out if they are corrupted or not. I also am unsure of how to address the int 13 and int21 issues. I so know that there are the int monitors, hooks ,and drivers but that is all.
Another thing is that the bios is not recognizing the smaller original hdd. Also when I disconnect the 20gig hdd and reconnect the 4gig hdd it will not boot,and yes I am changing the jumpers.All this started when I added a second HDD.I have installed an western digital 20 gig using their proprietary bios software(.I.E ez-bios) I am also having trouble installing ONLY a certain software(I.E smartcertify classware) I have started my pc in dos and typed scanreg /fix and that seemed to solve my classware install problem for a while.Now I can’t seem to install my new set of classes(network+) I’m not sure what to do. I am wondering if these two problems are related or not.
Original HDD 4gig second HDD now the boot drive 20 gig wd caviar windows 98 156 megs ram 78% system resources free disk compression not installed.No irq conflicts.Any help is greatly appreciated. Pauly Walnutts aka firstname.lastname@example.org
The drivers for your on board IDE controller are not loaded. Go to your motherboard's web site and look for the 'chipset' drivers that go with your motherboard. Once loaded, the IDE controller listed in the device manager should no longer state 'Standard IDE/EIDE Controller'.
