Re-installing operating system

  bazza11 09:39 12 Jun 2004

The hard drive on my Toshiba laptop has been replaced (with a 20GB model)as it had bad sectors. I also had the memory upgraded to 128MB. However I need to re-install my Windows 98 operating system and drivers and I don't have any of the original disks. What is the best way of going about it?

Also what is the best way of recovering some files from the original damaged disk?

Many thanks

You will have to pick one up on ebay,
unless you upgrade to xp.

Make sure it is a bootable disc for a start...load the OS on, a number of essential drivers will be included on the OS.

Using another PC, get the model etc of your lap top and go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers missing from there. I am assuming you know to look in Device Manager?

I just re-read this..are you saying you don't have the 98 disc or are you saying you don't have the driver discs?
