The hard drive in my work computer went bust, no data could be recovered, and since the company is cutting back on resources, we have no IT technical support. So I was left to do this on my own. No problem, my field of work is not computers (its engineering) but did a computer college course.
I went out and bought a new hard drive, 60GB IDE. Plugged in, the install of Windows 98 was perfect, no problems (besides the drivers, which I have cured by downloading them from Asus).
However, I noticed the drive is stuck at limited to 1.99GB (2GB essentially). I knew this was the FAT16 -> FAT32 issue, so used the built-in converter, which said it all went fine. Logging back in, the drive is indeed FAT32, but is still stuck to 1.99GB. I thought the conversion would have cured that?
The only other way I know is to wipe the drive, reinstall and make sure during the Windows 98 Install, I choose "Large Drive Support". But I dont want to do that because I have stuff back on here.
Also, I know Windows 98 is not supported anymore, but this is not the issue - it has to be Windows 98 as the software used in work works with 95 & 98 only.
