WinSleuth Gold returns inaccurate disk information.


This problem occurs because WinSleuth Gold reads the CMOS ports to determine how many physical hard disks the system has and what type numbers they are. In Windows NT, the virtual DOS machine (VDM) doesn't access the physical hard disk so there is no way to correctly report information with this application.


To work around this problem, use Windows NT Setup or Control Panel to get the desired system information.
