New Hard-drive
zuleika Oct-14-00 04:37 AM
Hello, I have just purchased a new Fujitsu 8.4 gig hard-drive, having installed it ,taking care to ensure the connections are correct, I'm getting a 'Boot Disk Failure ' warning on startup.
No doubt this is because there's nothing on the new drive for the machine to boot from, how do I load this info to the new C drive?

if u want to copy everything from your old drive to the new one ,then use disk image to copy everything as it is.
If u are starting from scratch then boot from a floppy ##### and type the command fdisk
then create the new partations ,and dont forget to set the primary partation as active ,after that it will ask u to reboot ,boot from the floppy again and format the primary drive that u created and after that type sys c:
it should then boot from the harddrive.
