You may need a bios update but before you do that should be a last resort. start your comp and go into Setup you will see on screen what to press to enter setup maybe Del. Do a Auto Drive Detect should find the drive. Save settings and exit setup restart comp the disc needs a partition creating and format all in DOS with the Win98 floppy disc. to partition at A:\ type fdisk choose large disc support then create a primary partition and make it active. shut computer down restart and at A:\ type Format C: after that you can restart comp with floppy and load windows
