Re: 486 maximum hard drive size

I found a 4.3gb Fujitsu in the loft. Its detached in the cmos setup but shows the wrong size. It doesn’t have a jumper to change its size. I also found a 13gb Maxtor with a jumper marked cap but its not detected at all by the system. Its an IDE controller, a SCSI one would be great but in the UK …
