Large hard disk questions
- Hi all,
I recently upgraded my hard drive (as discussed in other threads).
Using Linux I created a 2GB C: drive and a 9GB
second D: drive for Win98 to install itself onto.
However I just noticed that in my BIOS the disk is
recognized as only 8024MB.
Now I'm afraid to fill up the D: drive - will the
computer be able to read it? Scandisk doesn't seem to
have a problem with it, but the drive only has about
1GB of data on it.
There was a discussion on http://www.voy.com/912/ about
getting a BIOS upgrade from ASE, but I've emailed them
myself and as yet have no response. I have a Vivante SE,
and the BIOS date is reported as 1983-1996. Others have
said that their date is reported as 1983-1998.
So my question is: Is this going to come back and bite me?
Or is it some silly limitation that is only a problem on
