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

I have a pentium 2 computer and I could not boot up from my CD-Rom with Windows 95B or Windows 98 but with Windows Pro 2000 and Windows XP I could.Is there a good reason why this is so. I would also like to mention that from one of the hard drives I can boot up Windows 95. Much appreciated if anybody can help-Thank you.

    Would this also be the case for my Windows 95B CD?

  • RALPH-5851 May 27, 2009

    The trouble is then I cannot confirm what you are saying to be true because I dont have a foppy bootup disc for either Windows 98 or Windows 95.

    Thank you, If you want to add more comments please do.

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.

    Yes, also with Windows 95 which required a bootup disc. If you go to www.bootdisk.com, then you can download bootdisk for windows 98. Just follow the instructions to copy it to a floppy disk then you can boot from it.

My computer formatted i have genuine product key how to get win xp home edition and install in my computer


Put the genuine Microsoft CD-ROM disk into your CD-ROM drive.
Restart your computer.
As soon as it starts, look for a message like "press Fxx to temporary change boot-order".
Press that key.
Select to boot from you CD-ROM drive.
This will start to install Windows, by reading from the CD-ROM drive.

Installing the jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom that has 4 cds to it and I can't get it to install.


Jumpstart advanced 1stgrade cd rom installation.

System Requirements
Windows: 98/ME/2000/XP; Pentium II 266MHz (Pentium II 300MHz or faster for XP); 64 MB RAM (128 MB RAM for XP); 100 MB HD; 12x CD-ROM drive; 16-Bit color; Windows compatible sound card

If you are installing on a newer OS ie Vista, or Win 7, due to software incompatibility the software might not install, or even you can install the software might no work.

You can try using the "compatibility mode" in Vista or Win 7 to install the programs as "administrator" but no guarante this will work.

Alternatively, you can get a newer version which is compatible to your Operating System.

Hope it helps.

My laptop won't boot from cd


to reset the BIOS, there is a small battery somewhere in your computer. if you unplug it for 3 seconds, it will reset the BIOS. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT TRY THIS! get a service professional. If this doesn't work you might need to get a new laptop.

How can I put wireless adaptor on win 98 first edition


Good luck.

The first edition of Windows 98 lacked support for many devices. Windows 98 Second Edition added some support.

Can you find a "Windows 98 Second Edition Upgrade" CD-ROM and
license-key?


Search for a wireless-adapter that *CLEARLY* states that it is supported on Windows 98 SE.

It's time to "trash" that computer.

Find somebody who has an older Pentium 3 or Pentium 4 computer that is running Windows XP, and buy that computer from them.

Windows setup fatal error


This can be caused by errors on the CD-ROM media, or by a bad CD-ROM drive. Try using a different CD-ROM drive if you have one.

Os instalation will not load


Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!
