how did you format the disc? did you uswe a Floppy startup disc? as it cannot be done in Windows

That should work, but do it again, with a Win98se boot floppy from click here It's the tenth files from the top download to your Hard Drive. put a blank Floppy in computer and double click the Downloaded file. This creates the Floppy boot disc. Start the Win 98 computer with floppy in drive, then let it load to A:\> type just as it looks like this

A:\>FORMAT C: press enter you do not need to put a name in at the end, just press enter, it will bring you back to A:\> then the next way if it will work on your computer is to change the BIOS so the first boot device is CDrom, Hard Drive as the seconed boot device. then just start with the Win98 CD in comp
