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

Tell me the bios password for fujitsu 7220NU5/B


You will not be able to clear the bios password.

You will need to generate an MSDOS boot Floppy Disk there are a number of sites online that can show you how to do this.

This disk should also have FDISK on it.

Insert the disk and start the PC, it should boot up from the floppy. Now run FDISK and clear all partitions on the Hard drive. DO NOT make new partitions.

Remove the floppy disk. Insert the boot CDROM and restart the PC.

as there is now no boot partion on the hard drive the system should boot from the third device the CDRom.

Continue to re- install the system as normal

I used active kill to format my hard disk and now when i want to install a windows it doesnot show. what should i do???


I ran into this same problem when I used a program call "diskkill". I did not know that I changed the format of the drive using this program to wipe a virus off it. So how to fix it go to http://www.bootdisk.com/ and download the win98 boot disk .iso or a image create a bootable cd rom disk to reformat the corrupted drive. Have the system boot to the cd rom drive. have it boot to no ram drive. When the drive letter to the cdrom pops up, type fdisk hit enter. You are given 4 choices. press 1 enter. 3 enter it will verify drive, reboot using win 98 cdrom again no ram drive. at cdrom drive letter type format c: /s hit enter. That should will format your drive to be a fat 32bit. Reboot put your Windows disk in and let the system reformat the drive to NTFS or leave it at 32 bit, the limitation to a DOS format are 32gb.

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 l400 problem


1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.

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.

Fdc corrupted


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.

Boot sequence problem


try booting to DOS screen only by inserting a boot-able floppy disc (I use Win ME disc at this point although my system is also Win XP). Then select "boot with CD-ROM driver". It will detect your CDROM drive and assign a letter. Now insert the CD and boot from there. I have done this sequence many times with no problems.
