I am new to this site, but am impressed with it's quality.
I have installed a WD 2.6 Gb hard drive into a pentium 133 system, and the bios (under auto detect) wants me to us the LBA settings which are totally different to the drives specs. i.e. Cylinders, sectors, etc are different. When I try to change the settings manually, to the correct cylinders, sectors etc, it sets the drive to normal. Now when I fdisk I ofcourse only get a 504mb partition. I have successfully loaded windows 95b after formatting the drive as LBA, but beleive that the drive is not working properly because of the incorrect bios settings that where attributed to the drive. So my question is: Does it matter that the bios attributes different values to the drive, and can that cause faulty read/write operations??
P.S. Sorry for the lengthy question!!
