Reflash it in DOS using either the official DOS flasher from NEC’s German site, or by using the DOS flasher found here: http://tdb.rpc1.org/#FLASHERS along with a binary firmware file.
could you be a little more simple i can put the files on 3 1/2 floppy what do i do then i am lost
See your thread here. The instructions linked to include instructions for creating a boot disk which you can use to get into DOS.
i make a disk but allit does is flash on the screen i cannot keep it open
I would recommend asking a friend who is good with computers to assist you in this procedure. This is no simple task and you already misflashed once.
Once you have a bootdisk you can configure your computer to boot from it to get you into DOS where you can then flash the drive.
Please stop private messaging me with your replies. I can read them in the forum…
sorry i just cannot get into dos
