Will not find CDROM drive

When I install windows from a fresh boot off the 3.5 floppy disk I can load windows from the 98 cdrom. Once windows 98 is installed and ready to run for the first time it will not find the CDROM drive and I can not set up and of my drivers. When i go the the bios and try to set the boot order I can not set the CDROM I can only change to the A: drive or C:. For the secondary drive it will only alow AUTO CDROM. If I go through the boot messages I states that it does not find a CDROM drive

You should update your BIOS. http://support.necam.com/Drivers/index.cfm?M=547

for WIN98 you want version 28.... version 30 is for win2000

Booting method of libretto50ct


Best thing to do is,try to get a Windows 98 cd from a friend who has some computer skills and ask them to temporarily put in a cdrom drive in order to begin the process of repair.You will also need them to hook up a floppy drive in your computer,as you will need the floppy disk,containing the files to load the cdrom drivers and setup files to do the repairs to your windows 98 operating system....if not,you may need to upgrade to windows xp or Vista.Good luck:)

Dell Optiplex GX50 won't load windows OS


Which cdrom is it? Is it a windows XP cd? This is an older PC? Does it have a floppy disk drive? Try downloading from Barts a bootable floppy disk, set boot order to floppy in BIOS, change to cdrom drive letter after booting to floppy (D:?)
got to I386 folder and set up from there.
More info would be helpful.

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

54d9788.jpg
Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

I want to boot from cd to change windows from xp to 98


enter the bios set up on start up. Go to boot sequence, change 1st option to cdrom instead of main drive. Save and exit. Let it boot up, put 98 disk in cdrom. Shut down, reboot and win 98 installation will begin asking you to over write existing ops sys. Choose yes and the install should be a breeze after this. Once xp is installed, dont forget to return to the bios and change back your boot sequence to hard drive as primary /master.

Reinstalling windows 98 o toshiba 420cdt laptop


You have two choices:
  • Convert your windows 98 cd into many boot floppies. Then install from floppy. There is a utility on the CD (although I can't remember its name. I think it's something like makedisk.exe) that when ran will prompt you for many floppies.
  • You can remove the hard drive drive from the laptop, and insert it into another desktop computer. You'll need a small adapter to do this, like the one found here:
  1. http://www.pccables.com/cgi-bin/orders6.cgi?action=Showitem&partno=00504&rsite=00504
  2. Once you have inserted the drive into another machine, you can now copy the files from the windows 98 cd to the hard drive.
  3. Now re-insert the drive back into the laptop, and boot from the floppy again. Once inside DOS, you can change directory to your windows98 cd files on the hard drive, and simply run setup.exe.
The second method takes a little longer, but will give you many other benefits, including never having to insert the cd to install a windows component again. Let me know how it goes.

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..........

That error message means. You must have tried to boot up to a floppy diskette. The diskette ( 's ), were made with a defective floppy drive.To re-download the Setup Disks for Floppy Boot Install of Win XP click the link below:

Option if you have a cdrom in notebook & a real Win XP CD. Put the win xp cd in the cdrom drive. Start the Pc laptop & press the F8 key every two seconds. Windows will display a boot up option menue. Choose the cdrom. Win XP will start the installation.
