No the HD does not have jumpers fitted. They only need to be fitted on mine if Sata150 is not correctly identified, but my disks are working OK.
The drivers are OK. Windows asks for them and I have them on a floppy. A symptom of the problem is that after writing files to disk, when it reboots it asks for them again - which it shouldn't need to.
Since my first post I have flashed the bios to the latest version. Made no difference at all. :(
I have tried loading other OS.
My copy of Win XP Home is an upgrade so won't install unless Win98 or 2000 is installed first. :(
My copy of Win 2000 won't run Setup under DOS, so I ran it from a lower level file - but then it doesn't ask for the driver so it can't find the disks. :(
My copy of Win 98 won't work because only 98SE or ME supports Sata. :(
And I have tried running Win XP Pro from XP Home, but it refuses, probably because it's OEM. :(
I can't see any solution for this. Help!
