    Hi all!!
    i have a pc that doesn't get as far as the username/password stage.
    when i switch it on it loads enough to allow me to access SETUP, but after that i get this message:

    Bank 0-1 DRAM type NONE
    Bank 2-3 DRAM type EDO
    Bank 4-5 DRAM type NONE
    Pipeline Burst SRAM 512KB Enable
    Loading Boot Record from Floppy..Not Found
    Loading Boot Record from IDE-0..OK
    Error loading operating system_

    is there any way i can still access my hardrive w/out wiping it all out??
