Question about Western Digital WD1600AB 160 GB EIDE Hard Drive
Hello people i have a emachines and i just got a new western digital 160 GB hard drive and every time i put my windows 98SE in it lock up i need some help thank you
Windows 98 uses the FAT 32 file system and will only read up to 127GB. You could format the drive and divide it into smaller sections and windows should be able to read it fine. Either 2 sections of 80GB each, or multiple smaller sections.
-Download and use the updated FDISK.EXE utility program from Microsoft.
-Keep your partiton size for the Primary partiton that is to be used for drive C: to 127GB or less.
-Use the Windows 98 FORMAT.COM utility program. Note that while the prgram is running it will display an incorrect size for your partition. After it has finished, the summary screen will show the correct size that was formatted.
Formatting large hard drives is extremely slow. If you have a disk setup utility that came with your new hard drive, use it instead of FORMAT.COM. This can save you HOURS of waiting.
