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.

is this a legitmate retail windows 98 SE disk?

if its a bootleg copy it might not be bootable.

don't forget to backup your data before you format

You can dump the windows98 setup to your usb flash drive using wintoflash software and boot your system using usb flash drive. Proceed with the installation steps for win98.

How to format a lenovo laptop


If you have the OEM Lenovo XP disc are you have to do is insert and follow the instruction. If you are using off the shelf software, then switch the BIOS SATA to compatibility mode, and boot from your CD drive with the disc in it, and format the harddrive followed by installing the software.( like Windows XP or the Vista)
