Re: pc prob

Do you have the windows CD? If so put that in CD and restart the computer, you can make a boot disk as you install it.

I have a hp pavilion 6370Z. i lost my windows 98 CD, and my hard drive was formatted. When i try to boot the computer it just says "invalid system disc replace the disc, and then press any key."...

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.

Hi matthewbugbe,

I think what that means is it does not recognize your hard drive. If you are trying to install Windows 98 you should format your drive first.

Missing operating system

You may need to access your system's setup. Usually by pressing a certain key during power up. Sometimes it's the DEL key, sometimes it's an "F" key. In the setup you need to tell the PC to boot up on that drive first, then save the setup. You neglected to say if your boot disc is floppy ot CD, but that drive must be bootable in the setup.

Hope that helps...

Formating the Pc

Is the Hard Drive NEW and unused ?
If YES, XP should install no problem.
If NO,
Format with DOS boot disk and then install.

Msdos problem

thats cause you are running the wing 98 of the same hard drive that you are trying to format. What you need to do is create a boot disc. boot from that disc and then format.

you can also boot from a win 98 cd to format as well.. If you have problems doing that let me know and i can walk you through it :)

How to install os

This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step...
