Hello,i have a 486 dx66 with a 1.2 gig hard drive.When i do a format fdisk with only recognise 506 megs.I downloaded a bios upgrade from the net,with a flasher to install the new bios,but i get a message saying not a new bios.Which leads me to suspect the bios has already been flashed previously.However i still have only half my drive.anyone have any ideas??.
I wonder if the drive was bad and has been mapped out.

Try going to the web site for your drive, you probably need a program like 'Fujitsu Disk Manager DiskGo' to recognise the full drive.

Thanks BJ. I had a seagate so i went to their site and downloaded their equivalent of diskgo,and it worked a treat.Once again thanks.
