Computer command line interface discuss


Well, in the very basic sense, some of the default Windows maintenance programs have a few added functions if you run them from the command line. For example, Defragmenter can be made to defragment boot files for optimization or a variety of other specialty commands.

For optimization of the installation process, you can use a command line to repartition a USB drive as NTFS and clone a Windows install disk by giving the partition boot permissions. This is simple in the command line but would require downloading and installing a third party program to set it up in a GUI.

Some solid state drive options, such as TRIM support, are only flaggable in the command line, and TRIM is a protocol very much necessary for the smooth operation of SSDs. Hard drive functioning and indexing can be controlled at the command line level in ways that are more complex than the simple options in the Windows GUI.

Aside from the task scheduler, a variety of small scripts can be devised in the command line to eliminate small time consuming tasks such as file renaming.

Learning to use the command line is a valuable skill for any computer enthusiast.

How to format hard drive with windwos 98


You need a bootable disk that have DOS o/s inside it. boot from the disk and type these commands:
FDISK to create partition
FORMAT to format a drive (for example: 'A:>FORMAT C:')
(Usually the windows 98 setup CD already provide this)

otherwise, you may prefer to try 'smart fdisk' or other softwares that allow you to manage your disk with better GUI (Graphivcal User Interface). try to look for it.

Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

Problem with command enterpreter


Do you mean that you are receiving a message about the system wanting to know where the command interpreter is when you try to boot?
The command interpreter is called command.com and it should be in the root of your C drive. The full path to it would then be c:\command.com and if it is missing you will not be able to boot.
If this is your problem, hopefully you have a win98 boot floppy. If you do, put it in, boot up, when it gives you an A:\ prompt type:
sys c:
and when the command completes and you are back to the A:\ prompt, the problem should be resolved. At that point, remove the floppy and reboot the computer.
If this doesn't take care of it leave a comment and give me as much info as you can. We'll get you running.

Need to reset the password


Make A boot disk from a working Windows 98 machine. After you make the boot disk, copy the MS 'debug' to the floppy. 
Boot the laptop from the floppy.(this might not be possible due to a setting in the BIOS.) 

Search online for MS Debug +clear CMOS 
Run the Debug program and type in the commands exactly as written. 

reboot, and you should be able to go into the BIOS by holding F2.  

That's it. 

If you can't boot from the floppy, remove the hard drive. the computer should boot from the floppy, no matter what the BIOS setting is.

How do I re-format a 2x serial SATA drive to reinstall XP?


How to Format a Hard Disk

After you create the partitions, you must format the partitions:

Restart your computer with the Startup disk in the floppy disk drive.

NOTE: If you are using a Windows 95 Startup disk, a command prompt is displayed and you can skip to step 2. If you are using a Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, or Windows Me Startup disk, select the Start computer without CD-ROM support menu option when the Windows 98 Startup menu is displayed.



2. When a command prompt is displayed, type format c: /s and then press ENTER. This command transfers the system files and should only be used when you format drive C (or your "active" drive). For all other partitions, type format drive: (where drive is the letter of the partition that you want to format).

NOTE: If you receive a "Bad command" or "Bad file name" error message, you may need to extract the Format.com tool to your boot disk. To do this, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:


Extract ebd.cab format.com

After the Format.com tool is extracted to your boot disk, type format c: /s t a command prompt to format your active partition, or type format drive: if you want to format a partition that is not your active partition.

3. When you successfully run the Format.com tool, you receive the following message:
WARNING, ALL DATA ON NON-REMOVABLE DISK DRIVE C: WILL BE LOST!
Proceed with Format?


4. Press Y, and then press ENTER to format drive C.

5. After the format procedure is finished, you receive the following message:
Volume label (11 characters, ENTER for none)?

NOTE: This is an optional feature that you can use to type a name for the drive. You can either type an 11-character name for the drive, or you can leave it blank by pressing ENTER.

Compaq Presario 5102US downloading Windows 98


If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.

Installation


You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install
