    I'm now formatting the drive with Ontrack's dm with full capacity
    the original drive is a seagate 1.2Gb working perfectly

    I formated the drive with Ontrack's DM and then I could boot from it "drive c:" after disabling 32bit data transfer from BIOS hhhh
    then I could boot win95 start up disk and now I'm formating drive c: with it at full capacity
    hope it works
