      I have a disk called IBM Advanced Diagnostics that you load on boot and it detects the system hardware and then when you exit it stores it in the cmos. I cant get the PC to access the hard disk until I can store these setup settings, Unfortunately when I exit the Diagnostics the PC reboots and all is lost.because nothing has been stored.
      The hard drive is a 35mb MFM unit and I do know alll the information as to sectors, heads etc.
