This is on a Dell Inspiron 5000E running 98SE. Basically I can create a large partition, and use it, but if drive usage goes over ~8GB, I get a blue screen with write error.
I have tried this with both a Samsung 160GB spinning drive, as well as an MSATA adapter with 128GB drive.
The BIOS sees the hard drive as being 65535MB. There are no BIOS settings relating to hard drives. BIOS is the latest version.
FDISK is able to partition the entire drive. I have tried with Ontrack too.
Everything works great, as long as there is less than ~8GB used on the drive.
If I put the drive in a newer machine, and copy more than 8GB of data to it, I cannot read the files or directory on the older machine.
If I start filling up the drive from within windows 98, it will blue screen when I get over ~8GB.
I hope that somebody has an idea, because this is driving me nuts.
