It's a Dell XPS Pro 200n system tag 72V98
CPU: Pentium Pro 200MHz
Chipset: Intel 82440FX
Memory: 128MB ECC SIMM
BIOS: A06 released 01/08/1998 (the last bios for this computer)
IDE: (MSI DVD drive) (bootable secondary channel master)
(Maxtor 40GB hard disk) (bootable primary channel master)
I've also installed a promise ATA/133 card and tried to boot the
computer with the
CD and hard drive attached to that instead of the system board.
However, that fails as well.
I've gone ahead an installed from the floppies with the IDE devices
attached to the motherboard. For some reason the floppies boot fine.
Thanks for the reply,
