    if qunlock doesn't work

    What should I try? I can't get the drive to show up on the bios. It does show up on a linux boot though. Any suggestions?
    The BIOS is a 1998 Award Bios.

    Even a low-level format wouldnt help me. Is there any program that can totally wipe out everything on the drive (locks, partition info, everything) that can be loaded from a boot disk without needing BIOS recognition? maybe a bootable linux uitility or something?

    Did you power the computer off or did you just reboot?

    I had this "problem" awhile back and it was because I was only rebooting the system.

    Sorry, I meant powering off the system after running qunlock on the drive(s).

    it was my bios. I had to use the jumper that limited the size before it was recognized. I am going to jsut get a cheap i/o card.


    thanks for the help though.
