jimity,

unless there is a hidden partition on the hard drive, you will have to get another copy of win 98.

Have you tried booting up to the restore disc.?

jimity,

sorry, just reread your post.

Boot into your bios, go to advanced options, and change the first boot up option to cd rom, (insert the restore disk into the cd rom first)
