Thread: FDD FRU 64F0204 hack. I got this FDD (SONY MODEL MP-F40W-00)

    Default FDD FRU 64F0204 hack. I got this FDD (SONY MODEL MP-F40W-00)

    I got this FDD (SONY MODEL MP-F40W-00) and I want to install it on IBM 35SX with 08386.
    When I try to run the reference disk the machine says it is a 5.25 FDD
    and do not read it. The Bios gives me a bad configuration and can not fix it.
    I read somewhere that it is a MoBo jumpers problem, but in the article never did say who to fix it.
    Pls. help me.

    Start here:
    http://ps-2.kev009.com/ohlandl/8540/8540.html
    and go from there.

    PS/2s, even the ISA bus variants rarely use jumpers, but I've no experience with any of the ISA bus ones.

    Try with the 3540ST.exe created Starter diskette first.
