DOS Command to confgure Harddisk

  Rishikesh 11:45 03 Mar 2014

Dear Sirs

Actually we are having SCSI harddisk of 45 MB

Now we got new harddisk of 10GB which we need to replace in place of exsisiting 45MB SCSI harddisk

Please let us know DOS command to configure 10GB harddisk as 45MB harddisk as system (BIOS) only accepts 45MB harddisk in this machine

Warm Regards,

system (BIOS) only accepts 45MB harddisk in this machine

DOS will not change how a BIOS detects the drive

2.1g limit

Some older BIOS only allocate 12 bits for the field in CMOS RAM that gives the number of cylinders at most 4095, this causes a larger disk to hang at boot. Many large disk drives come with a jumper to make them appear 4092/16/63, does your drive have a jumper?
