md3patch error using Media Direct 3 recovery disk for reinstall
My Inspiron 6000 hard drive crashed last week and I'm replacing it with e and trying to reinstall Media Direct 3 / Windows XP. I'm following the instuctrions by runing media direct first to partition the HD. But, while the partitioning is completed sucessfully, I get the following error:
Running Media Direct Tools to Activate MD3 Button Capability
[md3patch] Updating XLOADER on disk 80h
[md3patch] Unable to Locate Media Direct BIOS Table
[DOIT.BAT] MD3PATCH - Error setting up the MD3 power button strike a key when ready...
I can successfully reinstall windows at this point, but when I try to continue with the Media Direct DVD after the windows reinstall it fails.
I'm running BIOS version A09, as far as I know it is the most recent version.
