In Reply to: Cannot access drives or run bios posted by David Olsson on July 14, 2000 at 12:39:40:

: I feel an idiot, but undoubtedly need to call on some knowledgable person.
: I have been suffering complications from installing Linux on a drive that
: used to be linked to a second, Win98 drive.

: It's a long story, but the latest chapter is this. I wanted to reinstall
: Window on that drive, but the install program would only look to the small
: fat-16 partition on the Linux drive. So, I tried disabling that drive in BIOS.
: One thing led to another and, somehow, I disabled both drives. Now, BIOS
: will not do its thing and I cannot boot any O/S. HD light comes on for a
: bit, then goes off and all hangs. No access to floppy, either.

: Can someone advise me what to do next?

: Thanks for any heplful advice.
: I would appreciate reply by e-mail.

: David
