I've just had a new 80gb hard drive. I tried installing it today, set it up as master to install windows 98 onto it. However, the drive is only kicking out a 10gb capacity and not the full 80 that it is supposed to be. I've checked that LBA in enabled, and run fdisk to create the larget possible dos partition (which is only 10gb). But for some reason I can't get the full 80gb! Any ideas why, and how I can fix this?
Have you selected large disk support on formating? otherwise you will have only FAT 16 also W98 is not an OS for large Hard drives i assume you would have downloaded all available updates which is some what over 25mb hope you have broadband.
Don't know how old your computer is but my first home computer was a HP Brio and it worked with a 60gb drive i never used above that size so can't comet on drives above this, as i said you look if your running FAT 16 instead of FAT 32 and for that size drive you will require the updates as when good old W98 came out 80gb drives were not around then for home computers. 20mb download on a dial up good luck.
