Unable to install win98
Posted on 2001-06-27
I do not know what's going on, let me state that first!
I just reassembled an old gateway Pentium-200mmx with 64megs system that been down and apart since I built a new system and had removed the hd, cd burner & ZIP100. I put it back together with the original 2.5gig western digital hd, floppy, 12x mitsumi cd, just as I brought it from Gateway in 1997, I did not change any cards on the mobo. Originally the system came with WIN95 installed but I was running win98 before I removed the components mentioned above. I just want to start out fresh and load a few kids programs so they can have their own system to work with.
Now the problems
I have a boot disk, WIN98 cd, but I cannot get past a c: or a: prompt to get WIN98 loaded what could I be doing wrong? I tryed fdisk, then format, which I have done before on other systems and got windows up and running. I have also tryed ez-drive & ez-bios that I have from a different hd that I installed and got up and running. I have a headache, this cannot be this difficult. I need some very basic HELP here. I am very lost and confused at this time. If you think I can be helped, please explain and or provide simple easy to follow instructions or links for the info that might help me.
