Heres the story. I have an old laptop and don't use it very often, so it's no big deal, but its nice when I need it. It's a Texas Instruments extensa 120mhz with and internal cd. About a month ago I went to start it up and I got the error something like no operating system found. I lost the floppy drive for it so I thought I was SOL, then was thinking and figured if it had an internal cd, even though it's so old it might have boot from cd, and it did. Stuck my win98 cd in there and booted her up. Went to run setup and got some errors about there not being any free space, so I decided I'd reformat, typed c: and got invalid drive specification error, thought to myself that can't be good. Ran fdisk and it returned an error to the effect that there was no hd. rebooted and went into the bios, check settings and everything looks good, list the hd spec.'s just like it's supposed too. tried again and got the same error with fdisk, so I ask you, did my hd bite the bullet?
