I've tried some various tricks in getting the floppy to boot but none of them worked. I don't know if my board has boot block pads cause I don't know what they look like. What am I looking for that I need to short? Also I heard putting on a boot block jumper in the lpt port works for some ppl but I don't know what that is. Is it a piece of wire jumping one pin to another and if so which pins are they so I can try this out.
Maybe I'm missing some parameters in my config.sys. Right it says shell=a:/rompaq.exe /Recover /!
I read the technical reference manual for this laptop and it says it's a phoenix bios and if the bios upgrade fails then it must be crisis recovered. Anybody know what that means?
