: I have an ASUS A7V133 motherboard and a 40GB IDE 7200 Hard drive. Machine came preinstalled with Windows ME. Windows ME did not work for me. I formatted the drive and now my hard drive is not recognized at all. I am able to install Win98SE on system, but it is in MS-DOS Compatability mode. Every time I boot up the system, during post the hard drive is not recognized. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Is your HDD recognized in CMOS Setup?

Is your HDD recognized by fdisk, can you see the partition(s)?

Have you set an active partition?

Microsoft has a Compatibility Mode article at:

Win98 FAQs are at:

Hope this helps,
