Cannot make windows CD Boot

I have an Itronix GoBook IX250 that I bought used. I need to install windows, so I have an old Windows 98 CD that I want to use. When the computer boots, it searches for the floppy drive (which I don't have), then searches CD. I have the disk in the CD drive, and then it lets me select to boot from Hard Disk or CD. When I select CD, it just goes to a flashing line in the upper left corner and nothing else happens. If I select hard drive, it says NO ROM BASIC System Halted. I did try changing the boot order, but I had the same results. I also tried setting the floppy drive so that it was not installed.

On of the first attempts, the computer did load the disk but after a few menus it said the computer must restart and now nothing works. Any ideas?

Re: Cannot make windows CD Boot

The problems you see when trying to install this Win 98 old thing is just the tip of the iceberg of driver problems, crashes and what not.

May I suggest a completely different approach?
How about installing Linux ubuntu? It can work with any Microsoft Document, surf the internet and has all the drivers you need built in. It can even run some of Windows applications.
Give it a try, what do you have to lose?

Dear guys, a few days ago i boght a used-notebook. GoBook ix250. and now i've problem with it. there had been windows xp sp 2 in it, but error frequently. I want to intall a new windows installation to...

I would try to error check the hard drive and also run a memory check to make sure it's not introduction errors. You'll need a floppy drive for the memory check and if the hard drive is over 30 gb, you'll have to hook it up to a desktop with an adapter as a slave to a winxp installation or, divide it into smaller 30 gb or less partitions, format with fat32 using a win98 startup disk and then scandisk each partition, checking for errors.

Factory reseting

Are you referring to a lockout issue with W2K, or are you locked out of the laptop via a Bios Password? If it's an OS problem, worst case scenario, you can re-install the OS. If it's Bios Password issue, try logging in with the Factory Password 'ix250'. Good Luck!

Gobook IX250

Hi. I use the 9 pin port with a Cisco rollover cable to access the console port of routers and switches. Using a terminal emulation program such as HyperTerminal. It allows me to configure the routers and switches. I believe that it can also be used to connect to old modems. I hope this helps, Nelson McKinnon.
