I'm hoping someone here can help me. I posted this in the WinMe forum but to no evail and I have new info now too. My computer does not recognise my hard drive as being larger than 2 gig anymore. I recently formatted my machine as I had a new graphics card ( actually an old graphics card which used to be in it, due to upgrades have now built my old machine back up so I know all is compatible and tested working)
I've read about the enabling large disk support from FDisk , which I did as I always do. then tried formatting but still 2.1. Tried destroying and rebuilding partition. Still doesn't work.
When I use the windows ME boot diskette it tells me there are files missing or corrupted (BTCDROM.sys , ASPI8U2.sys) and that line 29 and 30 in my config.sys file isn't correct.
Now the disc has been remade twice and works perfect in my other computer.
The HD reads as 2 gig in the bios as well.
Again, this is not a new setup, it is all things that have been done before.
The HD is set as primary master, with a cd-rw slave and a cd-rom as secondary master. Nothing has really changed since last time I did this. Except for putting a graphics card that used to be in the mother board back in it due to upgrading my best machine.
I tried with another boot disk and didnt get those erorrs, then formatted after making new partition etc. and it said it was FAT32 on FDISK but I still can't get it to recognise that extra 8 gig on there . Please help if you can
Any ideas, or questions of extra detail I can include?
Thanks for looking
