Right people, hopefully someone will be able to help me...
I have an HP Pavillion 6355 pc, recently installed an 81Gb HDD as a slave, original HDD is 4Gb; will be using this HDD just ot have the OS systeem on it. Anyways, I recently tried running the recovery cd to format and reinstall the software ( Win 98 and various packages )
but it came up with an error, HDD not found. Checked in BIOS and both master and slave HDDs where there. Contacted support ( 60p a min )
was on phone for 28 mins, and got no where, was advised to FDisk and Format ( which was done ) to no avail. HP Support then informed it was a hardware fault...Hmmmm booted up pc with a startup floppy, and all drives where recognised, i re FDisked and formatted but still recovery cd not working, then an idea struck me...i had a copy of win98...but alas it was only an upgrade version, and not a full one...so i followed the advice posted on this site with regards to installing from HDD, but it still asks the compliance question 9 point to old installation etc ) I cant bllody point ot the old version because the bloody HDDs have been formatted...Does anyone habe any ideas???
