SOURCE: delete operating system

Use the restore disk that came with the 4505 to restore it , then upgrade it to 98 with an upgrade disk. These can be found online still of ya search around or at a neighbors house *wink*
I believe the 5190 disks wil not work as they have the incorrect drivers for the other system.

Call Compaq/HP to get the disk. You will need the serial number of the machine and may have to pay for it.

My compaq presario c700 will not boot and it's saying that there is no bootable device, insert boot disk and press any key, however, i do not have a boot disk


Your Compaq did not detect the hard disk, that is why it is asking for a bootable device such as a boot floppy disk.
Check the BIOS configuration to see if the hard disk is detected, if not then re-seat the hard drive and boot up the Compaq again.
If it still does not boot up, then the hard disk is probably faulty.
To get the Compaq operating again, replace the faulty, install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs.

How to reprmat the compaq


What ARE you doing???

If you are reformatting to overcome a disk trouble, you need to find a startup system floppy or CD. You should be able to download or even create such a disk. The specifics are widely available on the WWW. Google startup disk and follow the instructions. While the process is simple, it is more than I can get into here.

I trust you do know what you are doing once you start ... right?

If you need more info, let me know
