D/l this and run it,read the instructions first,as it needs a couple of switches to completely remove all partitions/data on a hdd.

Insert a boot floppy and when the machine comes up at the A:\ prompt, type format c: and hit return. You should then have a clean disk and can reinstall. Make sure you back any important data first.

Before you start make sure you have all your installation discs. eg. Motherboard disc, sound, graphics, modem, and all programme setup discs. You can get a bootdisk from click here if you haven't got one. Also make sure your BIOS is set to boot from floppy disk first. Your restore disk still won't work though so you will need a Win98 installation CD.
