I've just fitted a 40GB excelstor HD in my Dell Dimension xps T700r, previously running windows 98. Dell diagnostics CD correctly identifies the disk, but I can't get any further as no C:\ drive is recognised when I try to run anything else. Excelstor don't seem to offer any real help. I don't know how to set it up to be able to load windows 98 and use the damn thing. It is the master, I have removed the faulty old drive. Annoyingly all the customer reviews on ebuyer praised its ease of setting up! which is why I chose this make that I've never previously heard of. Help???
OK, I only get to install a new hd every 3 years or so! So do I use the windows 98 Boot disk to format the drive - That and the Dell diagnostics programme are the only thing I can get to work. can you direct me to an idiots guide? many thanks for any help. My brain hurts. Hel333
