On my other computer I have one hard drive partioned into a small C for windows and all and a larger D for most of my programmes. As you should do I went to reformat my C and reinstall windows since the computer was starting to bugger up, I reformatted it OK however I forgot to go to a: and setup.exe, I got mixed up with setting up a new computer from scratch so I restarted the computer, it comes up with something about the windows 98 floppy not being a system disk so I can't install that way. Anyway from switching the computer on how do I get to a dos prompt so I can go to setup.exe ?
Can you not re-boot the PC, tapping the F8 key at the same time, this will give you a screen with choice of start-up. From there select, "Start with DOS prompt". This should give you what you require, flashing DOS prompt C: j.
I have been into bios and set it to the order cd/a/c with the windows cd in, the drive seems to start reading but then it comes up with the aformentioned message. I also tried setting it with A first though that message also came up.
Looking through my floppy box it seems I have a floppy driver for the cd rom drive, do I have to put this in first to load up my steam powered CD drive or is that just a thing left over from windows 95 (or maybe even before then) as I'm certain windows 98 installs cd drivers from the floppy so I'm a few steps ahead of myself.
