Portege 3410CT - cannot reload windows
Posted on 2004-03-21
I have a portege 3410CT, and when I try to reload windows 98 off the backup cd that came with it, I get to the point where it says choose which os you want to install, I choose 98 , then start installation. It says installing software, but then keeps saying 'invalid drive specification', reboots and goes to a command prompt. All I have on C is cmd.com.
I've just repartitioned and reformatted again from the recovery cd .. seems to partition and format ok, once it formats, i noticed 'cannot find c:\tools\ ..' then it says invalid drive specification, invalid directory, bad command, RMADRIVE does not exist, then it sits there at a c prompt. If I do a DIR it lists tools, config.sys, autoexec.bat, and command.com. If I go cd tools, it says 'invalid drive'
Any ideas of what I should do?
