LBA giving problem?

By gmg ·
Hi,
I turned on LBA for my hard disk while I was trying to install Linux. That hard disk was already having 2 partitions :
C: FAT16 (Boot partition)
E: FAT32 (Windows9

Now at some times after starting windows98, windows explorer show only E:and doesn't show other partitions - If I restart windows, the problem doesn't appear. I didn't format c and e drives after turning on LBA - whether that is the problem? - then how come it boots properly?

regards

LBA in BIOS?

how big is your HDD?

LBA should be ALWAYS enabled on IDE drives that are greater than 528MB

BTW: what you have as drive ?

Yes, I am talking about LBA in BIOS only. My HDD is ~15GB in size. And LBA was not turned ON by Dell when I bought the PC.

Here is the details :

c: 100Mb/FAT16 (used as boot partition)
e:8000Mb/FAT32 (Windows9
~6500Mb unused/for Linux
(drive letter 'd' is assigned to another Hard disk in the secondary chain)

Hope u get the full picture.
