Having formatted the drive, I am now installing Win98 SE. The system files are copied, but when the system needs to reboot to complete the install, I get the message 'Invalid system disk - replace the disk and then press any key' There is no floppy disk in the drive, but I can't get past the error. Any ideas??
Make sure that your BIOS is set to read the drive where your system files are on bootup. If it's not looking in the right place it won't find them. It may be that you need to remove all floppies and CDs on reboot - so that it will look at the hard drive where you have installed the Command.com file (make sure that you have!!).
sounds like something has gone wrong with your primary active partition, at this stage it should boot from the hard drive so long as there are no disks in the machine (cd/flp), i'm a little stumped for anything to suggest except start again
I've forced the system to look at the C drive, but still get the error. I'm assuming the installation hasn't completed and I was expecting the CD to spin up and for the installation process to continue.
