: OK, I tried installing EZ Bios because I was having problems getting a hard drive to boot correctly. Now, I need to gt rid of EZ Bios because it's screwing it up. Anyone know how this can be done? I'm working on a Compaq.

More important to know who made the HDD. Look for EZ-BIOS removal instructions at HDD maker's web site. If you can't find any, there are directions for Western Digital at:

If removal schemes don't work, my preferred method is pseudo low level format - a program (ONLY from the HDD maker's website) will write zero to every accessible spot on the HDD. Sterilizes the drive. Partition with fdisk, format the partitions and run scandisk THOROUGH SURFACE SCAN to detect remaining bad spots (if any) that format missed.

Good Luck,
Henry
