Question about Computers & Internet
After more than a decade I found my old lEpson ActionNote 500c aptop in the closet and turned it on... the following message appears:
"DRIVE NOT READY ERROR
Insert BOOT diskette in a:
Press any key when ready"
I don't recall but think it must have been pre Windows 95 and I do not have a BOOT diskette. It is a relic and I like to see what's in the hard drive. What can I do?
I am not sure if this will work. But worth a try.
download the link and create a boot disk (floppy)
Insert a blank floppy and run the exe file to create it.
You need to create this some computer having floppy drive.
Insert this disk into your laptop and boot using this disk.
You should be able to boot in dos prompt.
now, you could browse through the harddisk contents by accessing C: or D: or etc ....
I assume you know basic DOS commands :)
lemme know if it works .
