Hi I have an old Dell its put up Error code 9e the PC posts OK but that’s it I get the fist screen With Hard Disk Controller Failure.
The floppy Drive light remains on and so dose the HD light.
Pressing F1 dose nothing but reboot back to the failure screen.
Tried changing HD with Win98 on and tried starting with Win98SE Floppy to try and format a HD.
I have changed Keyboard.
Changed all IDE cables.
I have looked code 9e up on the net but I don’t understand the jargon.

Ok up and running.
I have a HD that I know is good with Win 98 on but it would not readd the drive. I put a third Win 98 a drive I had repaird and its loaded.
