you must now have an internet connection to download the bios updates
Do you have a Win98 install CD? If yes, you should be able to tell it to boot with CD-ROM support.....then use xp disk to load or install your OS.......I'm doing that right now on a different system. It will format your drive first....which takes a looooooooooooong time, however, it is worth it.
ok first u have press the delete or F2 and go to the BIOS setting and sellect the first bootable device CD rom after save and exit.. after that u insert the cd of win xp. and install the win xp... if any problem cont me...
Hi supertwins, Once you deleted the drive C: (You have trashed the operating system. You're Asus driver CD will not help you at this stage. Did you receive a restore CD? If yes you load that into the CDROM drive & boot to the CDROM. (You do not have a restore CD)? Than you are left with the Windows CD. Load the windows CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power up the notebook. Start pressing the F8 key on the keyboard. Soon you will see a screen that says: Please select boot device: Choose the CD-ROM drive that has the windows CD in it. High light the CDROM & press enter key. Windows should start to load. Follow the instructions on you're screen & install windows. During the install windows will restart & you will see: to load from CD press any key... (DO NOT TOUCH anything! Allow windows to continue all by it's self. This same screen will come up at lease twice. (Just let it go). When windows has finished you can than remove the windows CD & load the Asus CD into the notebook. Install all the software on the Asus CD. When finished installing the software from Asus, update windows through windows update service.

if you have changed the motherboard without either re installing windows or repairing windows you will need to because of hardware serial numbers that windows checks against installed hardware.
Change the first boot device in the bios F2 or Del on boot up to your cdrom save and exit and then insert the cd before you re boot.
Allow the cd to install the installation files, but when prompted instead of pressing enter to install windows, press 'R' to repair instead, at which point your C: drive will be shown, press 'Y' to answer yes to the c drive that needs to be repaired and press enter and allow a system repair, no docs or files will be lost as you are only repairing not formatting and installing.
If you have already done the above or done a clean install, check in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) again and see if all your hard drives and cdrom drives are listed correctly, if not select F10 or F12 depending on bios type, which is normally auto detect drives, as you may have faulty or damaged system files or damaged sectors on you hard drive.
If you get running you right click on your hardrive and select explore,right click 'C' drive, then properties, then tools tab and select error checking.
