Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
No rom available because the controller went awol.No reinstallation available because of this. how to sort this out without reformatting drive?
Also trouble getting setup to run, in any case. when i go caldera dos and enter setup prompt using floopy to With/Without cd rom support all i get is bad command and cannot access the startup prog for re installation.( Other computer)both win 98se.
Your problem and description does not make sense, any chance by rom you mean CDROM?
Do you have an original 98 CD? Or a copy. Rather than using caldera, use a 98 boot floppy?
Their are lots of ways to fix this, but i cant quite understand what your wanting to fix, or do.
Give a bit more information and i'm sure we can get you going.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone. or
you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard or
you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down cd dvdrom drives if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark? ! or a red x right click you will need to update the driver or
select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
hope this helps you
