Hi XX,

To my knowledge, if you are installing the Maxtor DiamondMax® 31536H2 as a slave, there are no jumpers required as shown below

WINDOWS SET UP FAILS TO LOCATE THE HARD DRIVE ACESS SEEMS TO BE DENIED


Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

Im trying to install my harddrive but im not sure about the jumper settings


If you are installing the hard drive in the desktop computer, and this is going to be the boot disk then the jumper should be set to MA (Master) and the drive should be connected to the end of the data cable and the other end of the cable should be plugged into the 1st disk controller.
If the BIOS does not detect this as the primary hard drive then the jumper will need to be set to CS (cable select). Check the BIOS again to see if it detects the hard drive.

If you are installing the hard drive as a 2nd hard drive and you are putting it on the same cable as the 1st hard drive then the jumper needs to be set as SL (Slave).
If you are installing the hard drive on the 2nd disk controller and there is no other devices on this data cable then it does not matter if it is set to MA or SL. but if the is a CD/DVD drive on the cable too then the jumpers must be set differently on each device.

How to add a new harddisk to a Gateway Peninum 3 550MHz machine and install win98?


Do you want to replaced the main HD or add a new one? If you want to replace the main one, buy a Hard drive under 160 gigs. I cant remember but 98 can not deal with a bigger one, you will have to cut it up or Partition it. Partition it down to 20 gig each. Do you have your Org. win 98 install disk? Get a setup program with the HD you buy. That program should let you Partition it and also format it to use with 98 or fat32. Once installed in the computer set the HD to master with switches located on the drive (small jumpers) As it boots up look for press DEL to enter setup. Get into the BIOS program and ck to see it it will locate your new hard drive you might have to set heads and scetors so make a note of the stamped on the drive. Once the BIOS has found the drive it is a matter of format w/ copy the command comm program from win98 you will have to have a good win 98 set up disk. Once you have formated the drive with fat32 and copied commamd.com you will need to install CD/Rom drivers you might have to find a good old win98 starup disk to boot up the cd. you might find a good old floppy with a cd intall on it at a local computer shop. if using an old win98 startup disk you can then put in the cd and at the Prompt type in cd win98 then type in  setup and that should be a good start.

WOULD LIKE TO INSTALL 2ND OS(98) ON SYSTEM THAT HAS VISTA AS OS


You cannot install Windows 98 on a system which has a better version of operating system.
You have to install Win98 first, to 1 partition which is formatted under FAT32 and on the 2-nd partition you can install Vista.

I want to get my files from my barracuda 7200.10 hard disk by running a windows 98 os from a hard disk from another pc. ive already run the win98 os but i dont think i set the my .10 to slave so i dont see...


Just remove the jumper of your hard disk to set it it to slave as you will see on the instruction pasted on your disk. If your disk is formatted NTFS, win98 will not be able to read your files use a machine with winxp operating system.

2nd hdd


both hard drives will need to be jumpered to a master and a slave or both have to be jumpered to cable select. normally the jumper setting are either on the label of the drives or are marked on the bottom of the drives near the jumper drives. if the setting are not shown find the drive type, model and capacity then do a google search for the drive "select the factory manufacture link" and search their site for the jumper setting of the type drive you have.

Format a corrupt system without 98 bootable


Hi,

Basically yes. You need to remove the HD from the PC without any bootable devices and install it as a slave to a second PC preferably also Win98.
You can then proceed to format the HD (as FAT32) of the 1st PC on the 2nd PC. Sys that HD to transfer system files and make it active. To facilitate installation of the OS, create a folder on that HD and copy the Win98SE installer files into it. Remove that HD from the 2nd PC and reinstall on the 1st PC. Power and it will boot into Dos.  Go inside the folder where the OS installers are and run "setup".

Alternately, you can just clone the HD of the 2nd PC to the corrupt HD of the 1st PC after format  /s. Just make sure that you still have the Win98SE installers copied to the corrupt HD.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
