Floppy disk drives
This is available purely to change the mode of the floppy drive. The
drive supplied and fitted is a 3.5inch 1.44 Mbyte. This setting, if
changed, could prevent software access to the fitted drive.
Disk size and type is auto-detected if either an IDE HDD or CD-
ROM drive is fitted to the appropriate motherboard interface and
only one parameter can be changed for each drive. The system can
control two HDDs and two CD-ROMs from the primary and
secondary IDE interfaces respectively. This list will appear if 'IDE
settings' is chosen:
When an IDE CD-ROM is fitted to the secondary interface, HDD 2
will change automatically to CD-ROM 1.
Selecting any fitted drive gives a sub-menu:
Once the HDD has been formatted, do not alter the settings as it may lead to
miss-read of the HDD and corruption of data.
If a SCSI control board has been fitted, along with SCSI drives, this
menu may remain blank as the SCSI board has its own BIOS.
This tells the system that a mouse is connected to the mouse port.
The mouse is then detected by the POST. You should not normally
change this setting.
