-| {{http://​omolini.steptail.com/​files/​hardware/​toshiba_t-series/​ANYDRIVE.ZIP|ANYDRIVE.ZIP}} | 13 KB   | This program ​will install inside ​the primary ​hard-drive'​s master boot record (MBR) and while bootingmodifies BIOS parameters to accept custom hard-drives (assuming your BIOS version will allow this, see FAQ)\\ To install, make a bootable floppy ​and copy AnyDrive ​to it. Boot off the floppy, install AnyDrive on your HDD, then boot from the HDD per usual. The Anydrive documentation describes how to have Anydrive ​modify BIOS hard-drive settings ​and still boot from a floppy diskAssuming ​you have a custom ​hard-drive that is larger than 512MB, you can install AnyDrive by running the command **"​ANYDRIVE 0 2048 16 63"**. This will allow you to utilize the first 512 megabytes on the hard-disk. Once installed, just restart the computer. Please note that viruses may overwrite Anydrive ​from the MBR, so keep your favorite ​DOS virus scanner and Anydrive handy on a bootable ​read-only ​floppy. The reason you can only utilize 512 MB is because of the limitations in the BIOS addressing scheme. For more information,​ see the included text file. |+| {{http://​omolini.steptail.com/​files/​hardware/​toshiba_t-series/​ANYDRIVE.ZIP|ANYDRIVE.ZIP}} | 13 KB   | This program ​overrides your BIOS HDD parameters so you can utilize up to 504 MB of a hard disk. It installs within ​the hard-drive'​s master boot record (MBR). \\ Due to its very small footprint, this is recommended for Toshiba portables. To install, make a bootable floppy ​with AnyDrive, FDISK and FORMAT on it. Boot the floppy, install AnyDrive on your HDD, then boot from the HDD to activate ​Anydrive, but choose floppy boot once it prompts. Then partition with FDISK and run FORMAT to format new partitionsIf you have a hard-drive that is larger than 512 MB, you can install AnyDrive by running the command **"​ANYDRIVE 0 1023 16 63"**. This will utilize the first 512 megabytes on the disk. Please note that viruses may overwrite Anydrive ​in the MBR, so keep your favorite virus scanner and Anydrive handy on a bootable floppy. The reason you can only utilize 512 MB is because of the limitations in the BIOS CHS addressing scheme ​(1023 cyls, 16 heads, 63 sectors). For more information,​ see the included text file. |

 I do not have any BIOS dumps for T3200SXC. If you have a dump, I'd love to hear from you!  I do not have any BIOS dumps for T3200SXC. If you have a dump, I'd love to hear from you!
