I've been building a 486Dx2 machine using a 4gb CF card for my HDD. I've been able to format the CF card and sort of install MS-dos. When installing dos I get rear/write errors and I have to "retry" to get the installation to continue. It eventually completes but everything runs slow and buggy. I've tried several utilities, clearhdd, EZ-drive, fdisk, and I have not been very successful. I feel like it is a problem with the controlled card I'm using and/or the version of the bios. I'm not sure exactly who makes my controller card or how to set the jumpers. I've left them as they were since I've pulled the card from a 386 machine. Any ideas? Thank you.
I attached a photo of the MB, controller, and CF card I'm using.
