Hallo James, > This may not help much but I too have a PC20-III with it's original 20MB > hard-disk. I tried to replace the 20MB unit with a 100MB (IDE not EIDE) > drive. This 100MB drive failed with the same message you received below. > When I plugged back in the original it worked fine... I did some "research" but I'm getting the feeling that C= programmed the BIOS to look for a particular drive and no other one. My manual says that all info (text, program ???) to add an HD to a PC is supplied with the new HD. So my question is: does anyone on the list have this "info" ? Thanks. After writing the above I suddenly remembered that the PC10/20 has an onboard clock. The Motorola-RTC used from 286's on has RAM onboard. Some centuries ago I studied the one's used on XT's, mostly OKI and MC57???. And I vaguely remember that they have RAM as well, but I'm not sure.
