It seems that my win 98 CD is damaged, as some files can’t be copied.I recently formatted my hard disk and I tried to re-install win 98 SE. The set-up installation was aborted, as some file couldn’t be copied.Is there a way of getting the win installation cd without purchasing a second hand copy or upgrading to XP.My PC is a Dell P3 600 and the O/S came with the PC. I also have a NEC Athlon 1200 PC running win 98 but it wont install on my dell PC.If I purchased XP it would slow down the performance of my PCWhat can I do to resolve this problem.
While xp will run ok on your PC, Win98 is much better suited to it. Do you have a friend from whom you can borrow a CD and use your own regstration number?
If there is no physical damage obvious on the CD, you may need just to partition the hard drive. Have a read here click here
Every one I know uses XP. Would ypu know if I can download a copy of Win 98SE from MS Help? No, you cannot. Dell may be able to help._________________Please reply to threads here, not via email. That way others can help.
Also 'Thanks for that but there are signs of damage'
HD is OK and the win 98 CD has scratches
You can't load Windows without a CD. Look on Ebayclick hereor try a local computer shop, if they have one, expect to pay around £10.
Thank you all for your valued help.I have now purchase a copy of winn98se from ebay.
