Maybe you have to check what is listed in device manager and remove any USB ports with a in front of them, and let windows redetect them.
The gateway site has an update for chipset and usb for our model. Are you game?I may take a look into it. Maybe if my drivers were reinstalled it would recognize the USB ports.
Do you believe your troubles came from using the windows path for bios rather than booting from a floppy?
There's too many variables involved flashing from a mature windows install...
please explain why it was working once we got through the recovery procedure?I believe it was because I tried to flash in a windows environment that caused the problem. I had software running in the background which most likely caused the problem. As Edwin recommends, so would I, flash it from the boot CD just as he had me do.
Also, when I format the disc before copying, should I select make disc bootable, or does this file automatically boot from aIf you format it before copying, do not make the disc bootable, those files will be installed by the drdflash.exe onto your floppy when you run it. Though if drdflash.exe first formats the disk as Edwin states, and then installs the files on your floppy, it will erase any files you had on the disk and still work as it should. Just remember to copy the files as I described above.
