Re: Ancient 07/23/1998-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KJ1CC-00: 80GB HDD?

Hi cp Result of installing Highpoint card: partial success. The first time I attempted installation (in 2009), I installed the card and switched the original (single) Fujitsu hdd from primary ATA interface to the new card. The result was that booting seemd to be going OK at first, but later stopped....

Re: Ancient 07/23/1998-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KJ1CC-00: 80GB HDD?

Hi cp One thing I forgot to mention is that I also have a Highpoint 133SB ATA 133 Disk Accelerator card. I tried to install this in the past, but failed and ended up being forced to re-format the original hdd (the only one attached at the time). I never figured out why the installation didn't work, ...

Re: Ancient 07/23/1998-i440BX-W977TF-2A69KJ1CC-00: 80GB HDD?

Many thanks cp OS really needs to be some version of Windows as one use for the drive is to test a Windows-based database. I may try to find a copy of Windows 2000 if that will help. I believe it was the last Windows before Microsoft helpfully introduced activation. Any comments on the updates I tra...

Hi Neelakantan Did you resolve your issue with BIOS for old Jetway motherboard? I am trying to upgrade a Locland machine with same (or similar) motherboard to use a 80GB Seagate HDD. Currently it works only at 32GB (jumpers set to limit disk size visible to BIOS). Jetway seem to have removed links f...
