Deskpro: can't boot from hd, or run setup from floppy; not newbie, have rtfm by [email protected]
Posting to c.o.l.s because machine runs only Linux, to a.s.p.c because it's clearly a Compaq firmware issue, and to c.o.l.h because the firmware might as well be hardware, since I don't (yet) know how to change it. This problem is not for the faint of heart. I have read the manuals on the...

It was running Win 98 VERY slowly so I decided to reformat and reinstall Win 98 SE as it is probably loaded with spyware, etc. I formatted the drive, created a Win 98 SE bootdisk, booted to the floppy, and later set the bios to boot to...

DeskPro 2000 by [email protected]
I just rescued a DeskPro 2000 from a skip and it appears to be working fine except for a problem which occurred when I tried to add some cards to the machine. Basically as long as only the three slots (2 x ISA and one ISA/PCI) on the outside of the riser are used all is well. If either of the PCI...
