Reformatting computer running Windows 2000 Pro
Posted on 2004-11-25
I have reformatted several computers before using the Windows 98 startup disk.
I am trying to reformat my friend's computer that is running Windows 2000. He has had nothing but trouble with it and wants to return to Windows 98.
Normally when I put in the floppy Windows 98 startup disk, I go to the RAM drive (D:) and type format C:/s and I'm able to reformat it.
When I tried it on my friend's computer, it just won't work. He said he has lost all his CD's that came with the computer. I think the computer originally had Windows ME and don't know how he installed 2000 on it.
Is it possible to reformat this computer and reload the Windows 98 program.
What can I be doing wrong. When I put the Windows 98 startup disk inHis computer says: Not ready reading Drive D.
Could someone help me get this computer reformatted.
Thank you so much.
