My friend has a Dell Precision 420 with bios A-07. He wants to load DOS
in a 2.x gig drive and use this box to replace an old 486 SX box he has
with a program he needs for his business on it.
I looked at it and tried to get a 2.X gig drive to be recognized but
this Pentium 3 800 mz Dell box won't find it and the user bios settings
won't stick above a 1000 MB drive.
Anyone know if a bios upgrade would fix this or is there a trick to
force it to see the drive?
I had a similar problem trying to get a Dell Lap top to take a bigger HD
and didn't have any luck.
