dos recognize c: problem.

Specs: Windows
I have an old 386 and Dos 3.30 but it won't recognize c: drive. I install a boot disk in and get A: drive but no C: drive.

Could be one or more of several issues. Are there any messages that display when you power up the machine? Has it been used (without issues) recently? Have you opened up the machine to see if any cards/cables are not as they should be?

Is the disk partitioned and formatted?

Check bios information is logically first step?

Yeah, the drive needs to be partitioned (with FDISK) before dos assigns it a drive letter and then formatted before it can be used.
