Hi,

I have an old pentium I 166. It was initially installed with windows 98. I upgraded the OS to Windows 2000 into NTFS format. But because it hangs very frequently, I wanted to re-installed Windows 98. But because it is previously being formated in the NTFS format when upgrading to windows 2000, I couldn't convert the NTFS format back to FAT32 format.

What should I do so that I can re-format from NTFS format back to FAT32 or how can I re-install my Windows 98.

Thanks a million.

Keith~

Hi

You'll need to boot up with the CD and then act as if you are going to install 2k again but dont the early stage lets you format the HDD, select to format as FATS (32) after this you can now you a normal win98 boot disk to format the drive and reinstall win 98.
