5227Changing CMOS and Formatting Hard Drive
- Sep 29, 2005Hi All,
I don't know when I'll have time to do this, but I have a new
laptop. It is an HP with 100MB drive and a Phoenix CMOS.
Can I replace a CMOS, like the pitiful one above with (I think)
Megatrend or the one I want it that is the wrong name? If so, any
pointers? Where do I get the CMOS that I want? Is it free
normally? Can I copy it from another computer? Am I asking for
trouble? <bg> So far, I cannot boot up into DOS with what I have
available. It appears I can if I get a USB Floppy drive so I can
then use PQ Magic without having to reformat the drive. It is now
the NTFS format and I'll keep it like that when formatting.
DISKPART won't let me create a partition/volume on the only MBR
The whole world doth err save you and me,
and even thou doest err some! ;)
