Re: Gateway 80486-DX2/50 Revival

lba48 can be fixed in a couple of ways
one is to customise the bios if it's one that supports "modules"
the other is an extra rom on a network card

Re: Gateway 80486-DX2/50 Revival

do you have a network card with a socket for an eprom on it??
if you do then i can point you to an eprom that gives you an LBA48 ATA driver extension!!

Re: Gateway 80486-DX2/50 Revival

been there - try a different cd-card.
some only id as "removeable media" and not "fixed-disk"
but only if the bios is not so old that it only offers a few fixed geometries for the drive!
