I'm trying to instal Windows 98 on a clean hard drive. The boot disk has created a primary dos partition, FAT 32 system, and I have a D drive which should be the CD-ROM. But when I type command 'setup' in drive D, I get 'Bad command or file name', and can get no further. Any other commands to try, please?
What happens if you type Dir on drive D - do you get a directory listing?is there a setup.exe in the listing?
Try E: I think that 98 moves your drive letters along by one when you boot from the "a" drive. j.
Can you read/see the CD-Rom in D?At the D: prompt type 'dir/w' to open the cd and read the directories on the disk. Does this show Setup.exe ?/
Thanks, tried all the letters down to N! D is the only valid one.beeuuem, D has 15 files, Attrib.exe, Chkdsk.exe, etc. It says D is MS-RAMDRIVE. Looks like The CD-ROM has not been installed, it should be E, but that's invalid. I'll start again!
Diesse, sorry, missed you out! :-)
Let us know how you get on - does your boot disk have/load the CD rom drivers?
Your bootdisk might not have the CD-ROM drivers, try the bootdisk from here. click here Use the Windows 98 OEM downloadAnd as Djohn says, it should be E:\setup
Right, it's found errors on C! I'm calling it a day!
Using bootdisk.com, thanks. I've got CD-ROM on drive E now, but as above, problem with C now.
Is it an old drive, [email protected]@m?
