Problems after Fdisk

  dkuk2000 09:44 07 May 2005

Just done an Fdisk and format on my brother in-laws old compaq now i can't access the help file on the boot disk.
The os was win 98.
I need to access the boot disc so i can use the cd rom to reinstall windows.

Insert the win98 cd, and change the bootup in your bios to cd.

This will do the same job.

I also take it you have set the primary dos partition to "active".

sorry just reread the post.

Are you reinstalling win98.?

then the win98 cd should do the same job as a floppy.

If you download a win 98 boot disk from click here.

The boot disk is created with cd rom support, so after using format c: command, you can simply change to cd rom drive and install win 98.
