hard and floppy drive trouble



New Member
I just upgraded an old 286 to a pentium 100, and using the old hd and floppy from the 286, which both work, but now neither will go. When it boots, the floopy does something, but does not read the boot disk, and the hard drive is detected by the bios (award) but I cannot access it. Any ideas?? I've formatted the HD, but stiil no change. I get a FDD fail (40) error aswell.

you must put the original parameters of the
hard disk (manual mode, no autodetect).
the parameter come in the h.disk label.(cilinders,heads,sectors).
