I have an IBM pentium machine (believe its a pc340) and I am having an issue with FDISK with dos 6.22. I have a quantum 8.4 IDE drive installed and the BIOS shows it correctly, but when I go to FDISK the drive it only shows 16MB total space. Thinking I could try the FDISK from WIN95A and keep FAT16 I fired up the system with a bootdisk and indeed WIN95 FDISK can see all the space and subsequently create a 2.1GB partition and extended for the remaining space, however when I go boot back to DOS 6.22 I get Non-DOS partitions for my FAT16 partitions. This same 16MB phenomenon happens with the WIN95 FDISK if I issue the /X switch so it's something with LBA? Not really sure if there is a fix for this issue as I really wanted to use DOS 6.22 instead of 7.x. Anyone have any experience with this? I have checked and did flash the BIOS to the newest version that I could find that is dated 1999.
