Setup gives message "Not ready reading Drive G, Abort, Retry Fail?
Posted on 1997-12-04
I currently multi-boot into Win NT, MS-DOS 6.22 and SUN Solaris. Ive got spare disk space and would like also to boot into Win 95. When I boot into MS DOS and run either the Win 95 installation disc's setup.exe in G:\ (G being my CD-ROM drive) or the one in G:\Win95, I get the error
"Not ready reading Drive G. Abort, Retry, Fail?"
Oddly enough, I'm able to install other apps such as MS Word and MS FrontPage off of my CD ROM drive. Also the command 'setup /?' works, displaying a list of command options, leading me to think that the cd-rom isnt at fault but rather that theres a ghost hiding deep within the recesses of my computers architecture. Oh and also, although I know it isnt possible to run Setup from Windows NT, when i try to "Browse this CD" from the graphical display, I repeatedly get the error "Please reinsert your Windows 95 CD-ROM"
Does any expert know what could be wrong? Please help. Thanks a lot. David Makil.
