Defining IDE and ESDI disk geometry in the BIOS
The geometry of IDE or ESDI disks is stored
by the BIOS in CMOS or parameter RAM.
If this information is either not present in the first place,
or is lost due to the failure of the on-board battery,
you must enter the disk drive type or
disk geometry information using the
setup program supplied with the computer.
Check your computer hardware reference
manual for the appropriate ROM table entries or
drive type for your computer.
