A little off topic, but it is directly related to my experiences flashing my LiteOn 32123S (RIP). I think it’s another thing to consider before people overdo it OC’ng.
A quick background. After flashing back and forth multiple times between XS0X and XSU1, my a: drive hiccupped during my last flash and my 32123S is dead (RIP). I have since noticed I can’t get my a: drive to format a floppy, or make a system disk correctly. To make matters worse, the good W98 boot disks I have do not work anymore.
Since then, I bought and installed a new 40125S which works fine. I also bought and installed a new floppy drive and it does not work properly.
- Cleared my CMOS
- Uninstalled the floppy drive from the control panel
None of the above fixed the problem with the a: drive. I can read disks in windows but I can’t boot into dos (no more flashing for me until I fix this. Then again, my wife told me I’m done doing this anyway.) Is it possible the bad flash did something to my motherboard?
I’m at a loss and would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions you may have. Czar
