Make sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD drive, I just hope you have at lease 512MB of ram because in a Celeron 466Mhz it's gonna be ssslowwww

Good luck!

Will the E-Tower 366is accept a 300Gb hard drive? My restore disk that came with the computer has Windows 98 and I have the Windows XP home edition upgrade currently installed. The original hard drive...


The 366IS appears to mount a Trigem Florida-TG/TGA motherboard, which does not support LBA48 access to disks larger than 137Gb. You can try to format the hard disk, either on the 366IS or on another computer, so that the first primary partition is 130 Gb in size. You lose the rest, but the hard disk should work.
To be sure, burn it in by write-testing it using any one of the many freeware "hard disk diagnostics" boot CD's.

I updated BIOs and now every thing is gone.


Okay, sounds like your BIOS upgrade went south. First off, re-install the original BIOS. Usually you back up the original before upgrading. Either that, or d/l the original BIOS from emachines.com. Once you've got the BIOS working, try starting the system. I'll need to know more to help you from there.
