: : I own an old 486dx2 66 MHZ pc. I wanted to install it again, and put two old hdd in it. The bios finds them automatically, and says the first one is 2.4 GB and the other 2 GB.
: : But after i restart the pc in dos, The first one is only about 400 MB, and the second one around 300 MB.
: : I don't think it's a problem with the bios, because he finds them without problem.
: : Anyone knows why my 2 HDD don't use their full capacity?

: : Thank you in advance

: Henry

I use dos 6.2
I haven't tried to install Win95, but i used a win95 boot disk, and it was the same result using fdisk.
