Having formatted my hard drive, outwith using the restore disk, I can't get the disk to work. I've installed a real win98 os disk & I still can't get the restore disk to run. I think that there are compaq file/s/program/s missing from the hard drive that allows this program to work. I've tried to access the restore disk from dos, & from a startup floppy disk, but to no avail. Any idea's on how to fix this problem?

regards.

i you used fdisk on the drive and acidentaly deleted the partition that windows was restored back to factory settings from then that could be why the restore floppy doesnt work.

the purchase of a new operating system is required i think.
