insert a CD/DVD copy of windows into your disk drive, then just follow the online screen guide.
You must first set your bios settings, the first boot should be the CD/DVD rom drive then your hard disk. Re-start your PC and press any key once it show during command prompt display.
Hope it helps..
restart your computer witht he XP cd in your drive and maiing sure it boots to cd by either pressing F12 or going into your bios and setting the priority to cd first then hard drive second after you have done this if it still cant see the hard drive then the hard drive has developed a fault and will need replacing if you havent formatted it yet try and see if it boots up to windows 7 if it does then it means the xp cant format the drive. if you have more problems then please use the comment below to describe whats being done.
Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too. If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive. They may have a restore floppy if you need it too. One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot" AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too. Restore CD should do it all though. If no restore CD - have Win98 CD? if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1 1. boot from Win98 CD. Partition n Format 2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A) AT PROMPT 3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: ) 4. Type CD Win98 5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive) reboot n do 1 + 2 6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors) OR JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions. 1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.
The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.
The partitioning of a hard drive into more than one part, can only be done during the set up process of the operating system install. The partitioning section is before the format, and the format only applies to the partition that the operating system is to be installed in. After the install, then you go into my computer and format the other partition.
NTLDR is NT Loader which indicates that the hard disk originally contains an NT OS such as Windows XP. The laptop not reading the installer is possibly a CD ROM or CD disc problem. Most (but not all) NT OS would be using an NTFS type of HD format. Windows 98SE would only read and install on a FAT(32).
What perhaps you can do is to remove the HD from the laptop and using an external 2.5 interface to USB connect it to a 2nd PC and re-partition that HD as well as format it to FAT32. You can also make that HD bootable (do a Google) and copy the entire CD installer of Windows 98SE to a folder inside that HD.
Once back to the laptop, it should boot to a C: prompt, go to the folder where the Win98SE installation/setup files are located and run setup.exe.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
This is Romeet,i shall try and help you with this problem. Before formatting for a new installation of w2k, did you delete your partitions and create a new partition or did you just overwrite the old installation partition?Besides i hope you did a backup of your data before any of above processes in the event you might need it later on? Please let me know about the partitioning and i shall try and help further accordingly as most likely it looks like a Disk Partitioning Misconfiguration / Problem
When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order).
Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help.
With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options.
Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model.
