Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
My screen for my computer reads missing operating system.i tried to install a boot disk but every key i hit makes a beep sound and it does nothing
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...

The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.
Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.
After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.
Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.
One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.
The computer has to be booted from the disk.
