The system actsfine except for this error on bootup that occurs just after Win. Go into the device manager at that point and update the driver for the ethernet card. It will update your software. I believe the only thing you need is disk 1 to load the drivers.

Then, suddenly, I’m loading the 3cb drivers for the 3cb NIC, and I get a blue screensaying that it can’t write to C: On reboot,it comes up and says that there may be a 3c9905b sector on C and wants to run scandisk. This conversation is currently closed to new comments. Try using Regclean a Microsoft download or do a Regedit search for 3cb.
I don’t think this is a problem with the hard drive, just something conflicting with the loading of the nic, and it’s hard to say what. Win98 – Phantom Bad Sectors. I do 3d905b there are some issues with older versions of Ghost and large hard drives.
Please remember to be considerate of other members. Go into the device manager at that point and update the driver for the ethernet card.
Everything worked great after that. If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. Which one would you choose for a desktop?
Install any other drivers that w98 cannot determine.

Installing The Driver In Windows 98; Windows Nt – 3com 3CCX User Manual [Page 27]
Clear the entry out of the device manger and make sure your network settings are empty and reboot. Just load the default drivers. The din98 is that Ghost writes the last sectors of the disk differently than Windows can read. The system should detect the card and a regular PCI ethernet card. Hence, the drive reported error when trying to access the phantom 20MB.
The error happened one more than the NIC when I tried this – I just started with a fresh install as someone else suggested. I believe the only thing you need is disk 1 to load the drivers. Make sure you run scandisk in windows first though. It seemed to run fine as I loaded drivers and went through several reboots.
I remember reading a lot of articles about problems with these cards. The system willredetect and re-install the correct driver components for this machine upon next startup.
Installing a 3c905b-tx pci nic
Any tech worth the oxygen he consumes knows this already. The system still reported that the 20 MB existed even though it did not. Select and start Windows in safe mode. You should be able to download the newer version as long as you have your Ghost disk and the serial number. All of the above are sound ideas but it seems to me that if you get the same error after removing NIC and driver that you may have some leftovers in the registry.

I beleive there’s nothing physically wrong with the hard drive. If this doesn’t work, then someone else might be able to suggest something else
