How to Format and Re-install Windows 98 SE

  buddiebuoy 15:45 28 Jun 2004

Computer was found to be full of viruses. Files have been deleted in error and can't connect to internet. Windows files are missing and programs will not run. I want to format the computer and re-install Windows. I have a Windows 98 CD and startup floppy and all the required drivers.
I have managed to successfully re-format Windows XP but doesn't seem the same.
Also when I changed the BIOS to boot from CD i got a fail message.

Try to re-format after using FDISK from the Windows 98 startup disk.

OK that's great. That's plenty to be going on with for now. Cheers
