I`m unable to install windows 98 in seagate 80 gb ide barracuda hdd


For W98, if you create the bootdisk from within windows, you will need to go here to download the newest version of FDISK.EXE then copy it to the bootdisk, allowing it to overwrite the older version. This way you will have support for larger harddrives.

FDISK LIMITATION WITH 64GB DRIVES:
Why does FDISK not recognize my disk (or RAID array) which is larger than 64GB?

There is a bug in Microsoft's FDISK under Windows 95B, 98 and 98SE that can be corrected by downloading a newer version. See Knowledge Base Article Q263044 for more information.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q263044

When you use Fdisk.exe to partition a hard disk that is larger than 64 GB (64 gigabytes, or 68,719,476,736 bytes) in size, Fdisk does not report the correct size of the hard disk.

The size that Fdisk reports is the full size of the hard disk minus 64 GB. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

NOTE: This hotfix is not designed for 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA) hard disks, and it is not supported on hard disks larger than 137 GB. However, even if the drive is physically larger than 137 GB, if you create partitions smaller than 137 GB, this FDISK.EXE version will work correctly. (THE FORMAT COMMAND WILL SHOW THE DRIVE AMOUNT IN DOS TO BE OFF THE MARK, BUT WILL BE CORRECT WHEN YOU GET INTO WINDOWS ITSELF)

Direct English Version download:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/Win98/Update/8266R/W98/EN-US/263044USA8.EXE

This package installs the updated Fdisk.exe to the Windows\Command and Windows\Options\Cabs folders, on a computer running Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition. If you are starting a computer from a Windows 98 Startup Disk in order to partition and format the hard disk, you should copy the updated Fdisk.exe from the Windows\Command folder to the Startup Disk, replacing the original Windows 98 or Windows 98 Second Edition version of Fdisk.exe on the Startup Disk.

use a windows 98 floppy statup disk and type fdisk enter yes yes again then delete and formatted partitions created new partition do not exceed 34 gigs for fat part. reboot type format c: after format is complete use xp disk and delete the partition you just created and let windows take over
if you cannot access the drive at all with fdisk you may need to repair the mbr on the hard drive if this is the problem write back

Seagate SATA Baracuda 160 GB harddrive crashed


I've found this to just be the nature of hard drives. You never really can trust them, thats why you always need a backup. Maybe look into a fault tollerant RAID solution if it's really important (kinda expensive)

Barracuda hard disk 80gb


the first boot sector of the hard drive is corrupt so fdisk wont work
please use software to repair the boot sectors zero and 63.
usually the softwares are superfdisk which is free on net.

also if you fail use seagate disk manager bootable version. it will be very quick and handy in long term too to format seagate hard drives

I'm new to building pcs and this is my first build. I have two Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250G hdd's installed in my newly built pc. I have yet to detect a driver when trying to install ...


There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.

CHANGED HDD FORMAT


The best thing you can do now will be to obtain a windows Startup disk and use fdisk utility to format.. If you are using a seagate HDD then you can also try seagate disk manager. Another option will be to boot from win XP CD and start the setup.. During the setup it will at some point it will provide you the options
1)format using NTFS
2)FOrmat using FAT
3)Format Using FAT32
From these choose format using FAT32. Thats all it will be formatted.. Afterwards you can use a tool like Partition Magic to resize and create more drives on the HDD.

Good luck!
Sai.

Partition error


Try using the command FDISK /mbr. This should fix the master boot record. If not, then if you don't care about the data on your drive, you could wipe it clean with any of the several utilities available on the web and then try partitioning it. Search for "Wipe Disk" in Google.
