Since I donīt have a cd writer I took out my hard drive and installed it in another computer, I dunno what happenned, but the computer didnīt recognize my hard drive, when I put it back in my computer (IBM H76) it didnīt work either. Of course I pannic cause I had very important info. An exfriend of mine took the hard drive and fixed it, apparently something in the boot sector was modified, my friend told that if the norton antivirus send me a notice about fixing the boot sector, I must not acept. My computer after that worked just great, without troubles, but....
For updating reasons I had to format my computer with windows 98 SE, the problem is that norton antivirus sent me the damm message again and this time I acepted, so the boot sector (apparently) was modified by norton. I installed windows without problems it worked fine but the cd rom was not recognized by the BIOS. It works under windows pretty well but for the BIOS it just doesn't exist. I need to format my hard drive and save my info again, but I'm sure that in the moment I take the hard drive out of the computer, it will not be recognize either in my computer nor in another one. I can't format the hard drive 'cause I can't reboot from the cd rom.
So, I dunno if it's my cdrom unit (i don't think it is), if it's the BIOS version that is not updated, if it's the boot sector modified or what, so far nobody has helped me to solve the problem.
Any help would be really appreciated
