I replaced my slave 10 GB hard drive with a 40 GB hard drive and no matter how I set the jumper settings, Windows 98 always gets stuck at
"Searching for Boot Record from IDE-0...OK"
The "OK" tells me that the computer sees the boot record, but it does not do anything beyond that message. There is just a blinking cursor.
The old 10 GB hard drive had no jumper settings on it whatsoever. I tried that with the 40GB hard drive but it gets stuck at that message. I tried setting the jumper on "slave" but it still gets stuck at that message. Finally, I tried setting the jumper on "cable select" and yet again, it is stuck at that searching for boot record message. I am at a loss. I cannot set it to master because that hard drive does not have the OS installed on it.
Windows 98 booted flawlessly with that 10 GB hard drive as a slave but refuses to boot with this 40 GB hard drive as a slave. The hard drive with the OS installed is also 40 GB.
Can anybody help me out here?
