How can I install my factory restore disks

When I try to install my factory restore disks to my computer it says " cannot write to boot " Then it says cannot find IO System. The restore disks formatted the c drive but it wouldn't install anything else. I can be reached at this address for two days  hickey@panax.com

Have you tried using the FDISK option from dos?  If you boot to DOS, do a FDISK.  It sounds as though the FAT got corrupted.  Also you should post your question over on one of these EE forums.  you will get a better / quicker response:

Enter your BIOS setup routine (either F1 or ESC on boot, depending on the machine).  Find a setting that looke like "virus protection" or similar and turn it OFF.

Thir really isn't a "C" question, is it?

Duneram your answer was correct. I did an FDISK and now I can get into windows. How do I credit you with the 100 points. By the way, Thanks!
