If you have formatted the drive, just make sure your PC is set to boot from the CDROM drive, then put the Windows 98 disk in the drive and reboot your computer. Watch the screen for the "Press any key to boot from CD", press any key and away you go, canard.
Maj this sounds good. How do I make sure PC is set to boot from CDRom drive? I'm trying to install new windows over current which have increasing probs with the irreplaceable VMM32.VXD as MS says this is the solution of last resort [need a drinkie].
First you need to enter the BIOS. This normally means pressing a key, or combination of keys, immediately after switch-on. A message to this effect usually flashes up on the screen when you switch on, such as "To enter setup press Del". Other common BIOS codes are listed at click here.
When the BIOS screen appears you will see a set of menu options. Look for one labelled Boot or Startup and select the item Boot Order, or First Boot; this will be set to HD0, HD1 or the serial number of your hard disc drive.
Change the setting to read CD, CD-Rom or the serial number of your CD/DVD-Rom drive, Save the Change and Exit the BIOS.
