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.

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.

Windows 98 boot floppy from here - http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

Windows 98 or 98SE OEM CD


You will need to boot from your floppy disk first and format the hard drive which will prepare it for windows, then use it to boot your computer to the cd and the process will begin.

Here are some more detailed steps, the above is only in a nutshell:

Boot problem - Win98SE


change the boot sequence in bios set up ...
keep in this order
first boot device as floppy
2.hard disk
3.cdrom

then save it and then have a check it should work ..
you have not mention hard disk here so i think the hard disk is not detected there may be some loose contact inside and it is not connected properly so it is not able to verify DMI pool ...
if so connect the hard disk properly then then have a check it will surely work..........

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
