Question about Gateway Solo 9300 Notebook
I am trying to install a hard drive, the floppy I have is called a super floppy drive, when I put the start up floppy in it it will not boot from it, it just says can't find sysem. I have a dvd drive, but it will not boot from it ether. the bio's has a password in it, I don't know. The computer will go past that, then trys to find the system. if I had a normal floppy would that work better. just trying to find a way to load 98 on this laptop.
I had a similar problem on my old SOLO notebook. I tried and tried to reinstall a fresh copy of W98, but could not get anywhere with it. I decided to try something completely different, I went with Windows 2000 Pro SP4. You don't need any codes, serial numbers etc. And it is a great operating system for that laptop. Here is what you do: Get on a friends computer, or you own desktop, and go to the internet, download Windows 2000 Professional SP4. Make a bootable CD of it. Start your laptop, without any thing in any drive, enter the BIOS setup. Choose the CDROM as the first device to boot. Insert the CD you have created, let the computer start. Install Windows 2000. If you can't get into the BIOS setup screen, you may have to open up the notebook, and pull the internal coin cell battery, plug it back in, than try again.
