HDD 'died' cyclic redundancy error

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by Eeyore, Jul 19, 2007.

  1. Wrong. IBM is IBM. Hitachi is Hitachi. IBM's disk drive
    manufacturing arm was bought by Hitachi Global Storage, the HD
    manufacturing arm of Hitachi.

  2. Even farther back ESDI drives (some) had a small area of one platter
    reserved for a CP/M OS which "booted up" on the drives controller cards.
    THEN, the system could have access to the drive through an ESDI
  3. TSR yes. Provided by others... no. It was included BY Microsoft, and
    was their product.

    There were 3rd party equivalents that predated doskey.

    If you mean 4DOS, then I've been aware of this replacement
    long before it became freeware. In any case I didn't say I was looking
    for this extra functionality, I just said that it would be one of the
    few features of XP that I would add to W98.
