Problem formating Hard Drive

  gcha 15:07 11 Jul 2004

My recent posting regarding RAM upgrade with 133MHz module worked fine but I know have another problem with formating the HD. The PC currently has an early Win98 OS which I want to upgrade to Win98SE. I booted up with a Win98 startup floppy and tried to reformat the HD. The programme started but after 3% stopped with the message "insufficient memory to proceed". There is 256M RAM on the PC. I tried using the floppy on another PC running 98SE and 128M RAM to reformat an unused partion and it worked fine. Any advice would be welcome

I think your Bootdisk is fine as it is, I suggest you look at Smiler's link, print it off, and then go through those suggestions in order, and to the letter
