I cant get my computer to boot my CF Card
I have a 16mb compact flash card connected to my computer via a CF-IDE adapter and it installed as the primary master drive. My computers bios picks this drive up as being a regular 16mb hard drive. However, it cannot boot at all. The computer reads this drive then freezes.
This disk is:
-formatted in fat12
-had its mbr modified by bootprep.exe (which is supposted to make cf cards bootable)
-has a primary active patition
-has all dos boot files copied to it from a windows 98 boot disk
-i also uses sys.com to make this cf drive bootable/
-in fdisk, the drive shows up but in Partition Magic it doesnt
-Under computer managment/disk management in windows xp, i cannot mark
the disks partition as active. (its greyed out)
I really dont know what else to try, please help if you can!!
