Question

For the first time in a while I shut my secondary computer down for over a week. It starts and then reads:

Conflict IO Ports 2f8 and upon continuing it says that I have an invalid system disk.

Thanks in advance for any guidance you may be able to offer.

You could try going into the bios on boot up and detect hard drive, and also check boot sequence making sure it A-C

Or

Boot with the startup floppy and get to the A:\> prompt Once there type fdisk /mbr & press Enter Next, Start up with your Boot disc or Startup disk in ( without cd rom support ) At the A: prompt, type, sys c: and then press ENTER Take out the boot disk & restart your computer.
