I recently obtained a Prolinea 4/66 off the ebays with the hope of having a descent dos gaming PC. My main problem now is getting a setup disk so I can alter the BIOS to see the CF HDD I now have in place.
See, when I got it, it had no HDD. The f10 function to get into the bios is not present, so, it won't see the CF drive, and I can't direct it to. I have downloaded several exe files for the PC that make setup disks to handle this, but now the problem is Windows 10. The first problem was getting the exe files to run (sp0891, or 1363, or even 16085). Win10 hates that. Once I got around that, the next problem, Win10 again, was "Windows cant find that .exe file, make sure..." even though you really can't spell a right click wrong.
So, I searched through a ton of BS trying to figure that out only to really find my solution is "Reinstall Win10".
This is what I'm looking for. A bootable setup disk for the Compaq Prolinea 4/66 in an IMG format. That I can do. Everywhere else gives me an exe I can't run, or a middle finger. I tried Compaq/HP's live text help, and I got someone that argued wether or not PCs existed in the early 90s.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
