Re: Bootable floppy?
alright.. well you need a floppy drive for this. that's.. a duh.
you need a floppy disk 1.44mb. if you don't have one. ask a friend, they're usually all over the place.
it doesn't matter if the floppy has stuff on it, you can clean it up on ur own and delete the stuff.
ok i'm guessing this is kinda like feature tool which i had to use on my hitachi hdd.
download the thing from the samsung website, and it should be a .exe. launch it while the floppy disk is in your system and it should go solo from there. then take the floppy out, turn off your computer and turn it back on.
from there the DOS operations should start up during while the computer is booting up and you'll be able to enable such features as 3.0gb/s SMART and other crap, i dunno what features your HDD allows. and make sure your motherboard supports such features before you activate them.
that's the jist of things.. i think.
