Hi,

I reformatted my hard drive, did fdisk, made the whoel disk primary portition, formatted C:, and installed drivers for CD-Rom. I did this all in 1 proccess, no restarting the pc during any process (except fdisk, had to reboot). After i installed the CD-Rom drivers, i rebooted, and the C: drive isnt readable anymore, i could access it before boot but after i couldnt, so in otherwords, i cant install my OS because i need to reboot for CD-Rom drivers to work, and if i do, C: goes back to unreadable format. What can i do to fix this?

Thanks,
Limb

Ok , i tihnk i can get it going, IF, i were able to boot with the bootdisk, start with CD-Rom support and NOT have MS assign the drives, BECAUSE, MS assigns stuff different then my CD-Rom drivers, which are now staying on after i reboot, yay, MS assigs CDR101 or something, and my drviers assign CD101 or something like that, so how do i do this?

what i was talking was about LBA, sohuld i set LBA to the CD-Rom, or HD. And it seems that Bios is recognizing the CD-Rom but its missing some of the fields.

Too late, already shot it :p, I already tried em all, i tihnk im outta luck, ill just go buy the 1 for 30 bucks on tigerdirect.com, unless i can find a cheaper 1. Ive had problems with this pc and cd-roms before. I think the cd-rom went wacko liek the other 1.
