Disk boot failure
Posted on 2004-08-23
here is the scenario:
i'm running windows98 se . my c drive is partitioned as c, d and e. my cdrom drive is f. i have a win98 boot disk and the win98 installation cd[if i could only use it!].
since 2 days, the system comes up with a 'disk boot failure' each time i start up.
i tried the boot disk from a drive, chose the cdrom option. still not able to read from the cdrom drive.
i made modifications to autoexec.bat file on boot disk to add the following lines...
MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /L:F
my config.sys file has the line..
still not able to reach the cdrom drive.
i type c: , it shows c>
i type d: , it shows 'invalid drive specification'
i type e: , it shows 'invalid drive specification'
i type f: , it shows 'invalid drive specification' [cd drive]
any help would be appreciated!
