Hallo Bryan, > Did you change the BIOS to the proper hard drive type? A 20 MB HD will probably > have a type (from 1 to 46, I believe) and the 100 MB *may* be one of these. Some centuries ago there existed PC's which had a BIOS which didn't know of the existance of harddisk at all. Then came the AT with some preprogrammed types. The one you mean is type 4: 620 tracks, 4 heads, 17 sectors. Those were the days that I had to hack these ROMs for the simple reason that until 1990 type 47 simply didn't exist. That were also the days that the SETUP had to be run from a floppy and OH WEEH if your PC didn't dig your floppy with the setup program :( > Otherwise, you need to pick type 47. We thanked God on our bare knees for this !!! > If the BIOS isn't able to autodetect the new HD.... Another miracle for us "old" guys :) To be short: the PC20-III is a pre-AT type PC which strictly speaking shouldn't know anything of harddisks. Let stand the onboard IDE-interface. Therefor I see it as an hacked PC with a non-standard HD-interface. And being non-standard the question now is how one can change settings, IF IT IS POSSIBLE AT ALL.
