do you think this will work?

I don't know actually why Win98 can't support HD of larger Giga Bytes.

I have got a 40GB HD, of course, I know the Win98 and my MB will never be able to recognize it.

I am trying to format the HD and make 8 partitions.
Each partition gets 5GB.

Do you think if this new formatted HD will be accepted then?

Not a Windows 98 (caused) problem.

If you read you see 98 supporting 127GB drives without any issue. Your limit is caused by something else so you need to find it.

If it's the BIOS, then check the drive maker for a workaround if the BIOS update doesn't cure it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
