I have a Pc at work, I shut it down one night and then in the morning win xp had dissapeared and I know have win 98 Installed.

How did this happen???? I thought it may be booting off the network but the server is disconnected. As far as i am aware there is no dual boot set up.

What the hell happened , why how, please help

Someone did it!

Possibly it was cloned wrongly by someone.

What sort of network are you on?

Most likely though it is dual-boot, perhaps on two disks (rather than via partition) and the disk with xp has failed.

Any practical jokers around? Maybe someone changed your pc...

I should think that it originally had w98 andit was updated to xp which has now uninstalled due to a fault, leaving w98,which was still there but not the default.
