Abstract

Disclosed is a method extending the CBIOS interface for fixed disks in a personal computer to allow the use of such devices storing up to 7.81 (GB) Gigabytes. Without using this method, fixed disks larger than 1 GB cannot be used in IBM PC and PS/2* systems due to CBIOS interface limitations and Disk Operating System (DOS) implementation design points.
