I just had a problem with Win 98. For some reason when I shut down and clicked on restart in DOS Mode it got stuck in a loop and refused to get out of Dos thus I ended up screwing up my registry when I tried to reinstall 98. HP told me I would have to reformat of which I have now done but thinking maybe I should go ahead and either add a second hard drive or switch out to a bigger drive. I currently have an HP Pavillion 8280 333processor and 128 megs Ram with an 8 gig drive. I am thinking of replacing the 8 with a 20gig. Sounds easy but I know it isn't and if I run into problems I won't be able to simply get on here and aske you guys questions so thought I would try to find out what I was getting into before I started. I was looking at a Maxtor drive today at Staples and the guy told me that everything I needed was in the box to transfer all my files from my old drive to the new one.(Is this as easy as it sounds?) Do I really need a drivecopy program instead? Could I by chance use my upgrade copy of Windows 98 to put on my new drive without first installing 95? Maybe I would be wise just to invest in a new CPU. Any and all ideas are very much appreciated! Also, one other thing, do you think it is worthwhile installing Nortons System Works? I had it on my machine before I had my problems but it really didn't help me any getting out of this problem. Thanks for the help and listening.
