    Get an external hard disk enclosure, load the system from the external and then format again. Meanwhile, the software may also pose the problem. Check if it is genuine.

Hi, it will definitely format if:
1 - you can create a startup disk (either from a friend or buy one) and use it to format from MS-DOS mode.
2 - you can get a buy a win98se installation cd. It contains the command you will need to format.
But remember this, don't format from window - it's not done that way.
Let me know if you get it and you can also contact me or rate my solution on fixya. Thanks.

How do i erase windows 95 and replace it with windows 98?


you get a copy of windows 98, pop in the disc, click upgrade (or fresh install if you don't wanna keep anything), and let her install. About 45 minutes after it reboots you should check on it because it has a dialog box for you then.

in the bios you must enable auto detect for primary master, primary slave, secondary master and secondary slave if it is set to none your computer wont boot the cd.

i dunno what bios options they give you on your lenovo laptop.

Formatting IBM Thinkpad 600E


I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

Windows 98 se, xp not installed to compaq armada E500 pc notebook


First, format the hard drive and make sure it is in FAT or FAT32 for Windows 98 install. Then do your partitioning etc and should work. If it doesn't, it is possibly a hardware fault.

Here is the site for the drivers for the laptop :

Hope this helps in some way :)

NOT booting WINDOW XP


Hey stanley154

try to boot your machine using window 98 startup disk or window 98 bootable CD. then type fdisk on DOS prompt. Then try to delete non dos partation and the create primary dos partation. Restart your machine, let it start window or the floppy until it return to dos prompt. Then you can type the format c: e.g a:\format c: or D:\format c:. After that try to run window xp.


all the best

Need help upgrading my labtop


You need the windows 98 se installation cd and product key.

Microsoft no longer supports or makes these so your going to have to find one used, from ebay for example:
