I need to to get the 'Identify Drive' Info, inclusing the Hard-disk serial number. I tried using INT 13 H, Function 25, but that doesn't seem to be supported by my BIOS. I wish to try using INT 25H (Absolute Read of the Disk).
My target platform is Win16 and I want to avoid the VXD approach of possible.
I came across your Frank/Bill's discussion here. How ever that does not specify which SECTOR to read.
Can any one provide me with that info? (SECTOR NUMBER)
I've given your code and documentation that I could find
AL - Drive (3 for Hard disk)
CX - FFFFh (Operation on DOS 4.0 extended partition > 32M)
DS:BX - Address of transfer packet (10 bytes)
The transfer packet in turn contains the follwing:
DS:[BX+0] - STARTING LOGICAL SECTOR NUMBER
DS:[BX+4] - count of sectors to transfer
DS:[BX+6] - trasfer address offset
DS:[BX+8] - transfer address segment

I could get no. of network Adaptar but not their details.
