I need to re-install Windows 98 on my laptop as the laptop does not completely boot up.

I renamed the windows directory and tried to re-install windows 98 with setup up files that I have copied to the hard drive but I got the following message:

Message SV0168

Your computer already has an operating system which cannot be upgraded by this version of setup. You need to obtain the windows 98 upgrade.

The cd rom does not work. Has anyone got any suggestions please

do you have a fell windows 98 disc or a restore to factory settings?

pop the diskette (floppy disc) in and the cd-disc and it will take you through the set up process

The cd rom drive does not work - I have to restore from the files on my hard drive.
