: I'm scratching my head here. I have a AX6BC MB w/ onboard IDE. I can boot to a 1.6GB drive fine. If I try to boot to a 4GB drive (I tried both a WD and a Quantum), the PC hangs.

: With either 4GB drive if I boot to A: the HD is fully accessible. I did a FDISK /MBR and a SYS C: on each drive. I also repeated the above with Promise Ultra 100 IDE card with the same results?

: Any Ideas??? Thanks in Advance!

Does your BIOS recognize the FULL capacity of the 4 GB drives? Were the 4 GB HDDs ever on compaq systems?
