I have major problems - CAN YOU HELP - I tried to install LINUX on my pc from a
cover magazine. It was supposed to write a root and boot disk but instead it wrote
to my C: drive-hard disk. I have lost 1GB of Data and cannot no longer boot from
my hard disk.
I followed all the instructions and was also told that it would quite happily exist with
MSDOS. What I actuallly typed was "/ROOTDSK1/UMSDS144" and
I have a 486DX33, with an NCR PCI, SCSI 2 with the IDE and FD controller all built
into the motherboard. I have a 1.2GB SCSI MAXTOR Hard disk controlled by the
I am a student, I am in desperate need to get back in control of my PC.
I cannot no longer boot from my Hard Disk I can only use a floppy disk to boot from.
Any attempt to boot from my hard disk result in a vigourous read from the floppy
disk drive and at the same time it displays "L80808080808080808080808...."
I have used FDISK to repartition the disk and FORMAT /S to format the disk
afterwards. It still doesn't remedy it.
CAN YOU HELP ME - URGENTLY
