Welcome to FixYa. My name is Steve. The surefire way to see if your cd rom will work with your computer is to boot your computer with the windows 98 start up disk and choose the option to start the computer with cd support. If you do not have a start up floppy you can make one using the Microsoft instructions at this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/187632 If your cd works with the generic drivers loaded with that Start up floppy then you need only to locate the drivers for your cd rom which you have not yet specified as to the brand and model number. Post that info if you need more help. Steve Medley

I got A gateway essential 500 from a goodwill store and it has xp on it. It has the coa for windows 98. I also cannot get the cd-rom to read a disk even though its lights go on and it tries to read a...


Any EIDE (non Sata) interal drive should work on this computer. However, first I would check the internal cables on the drive to ensure the are plugged in tight (you may just have a loose cable). Check both the mother board end and the drive end.

Personally I would go puppy linux over 98, but that is me.

Hope this helps, have a great day and good luck.

Cannot boot up from CD-Rom with Win 95 and Win 98


You probably have a version of windows 98 that was not bootable on CD. You would need to boot from a windows 98 floppy bootup disc, then go the the d:\win98 directory and run setup from there.
