Hi,
I installed a 2nd HDD as the slave on the primary IDE. Win98 will only see
it if I start the computer with the power off. If I restart the computer
while it is running Win98 will not see the drive. When I can not see the
drive, system properties|device manager|hard disk controller, I get a
message saying this device is not function properly, missing drivers, and
update drivers. When I can see the drive this device is working properly.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
TW
