You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install

How to install windows 7 on toshiba satellite c50-a634

On the first screen you see on start up should ask "To enter setup press (ESC or DEL or F1). You need to know which key to depress to enter BIOS setup. Once you enter BIOS (Basic Input Output System you would need to setup your boot priority to your CD or DVD drive. Once you do that you will need to save your configuration and with your operating system disk in the disk drive restart your computer and then you will need to select Boot from CD or DVD, which ever type drive you have and your operating system setup should start.

Toshiba laptop cd drive not working

If its not detected in device manager and your laptop has HDD recovery
1 type toshiba application installer in the start search box, press enter
2 in that program choose "install application and drivers", click next
3 it will go to a window where you have the list of all the drivers
4 look for the CDDVD drive, click it to highlight
5 click install

afterwards if its still not detected you probably have a hardware issue and probably the drive itself needs to be replaced

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.
