Im was trying to sort out a pc for a friend tonight. (it was screwed up, scandisc would NOT work) anyway everytime i connected to aol (why do people use aol..it sucks) it would disconnect me after about 5 minuite so i lost my rag and decided to do a celan install. i tried upgrading to winxp pro first but it wanted the win98 serial and the friend had lost it. so i formated the c: throgh command promt.
so i went into the bios to change the first boot device to d: and there was no option to change the boot device, i went into every category and could not fins it (it was a strange bios).
o it kept trying to boot of a: and i didnt have a boot disc.
So heres my question
If i downloaded a win98 boot disc and used that to run the WINXP pro disc would it work?
if so where could i download a win98 boot disc, or better yet a winxp boot disc, i cant seem to find one of these. (im using winxp on my pc if that helps.
just keep with win98 as XP needs a minimum of 1.5GB HD space 64MB RAM and a 300MHz CPU so you know for it to run smooth you will need at least a 600-800MHz CPU preferably 256MB RAM and a good performing HD(2mb cach 7200rpm)
and as you mention win98 im guessing at best this friends pc is going to be 550Mhz AMD K6\2 128MB PC133 RAM and a 5400rpm HD with around a 256kb cach so like i said stick with win98 preferably SE if you can get a hold of a win98se disc that is
