Create boot disk


Insert a blank diskette into the floppy drive. Click start click on computer you should see all of you drives.

Right-click on Drive A. You will see the option to format the drive.

Click on Format. Depending on your operating system, you will see an option that reads either "Create a system disk" or "Create a MS Dos system disk." Click the box next to this option.

Click the "Start" button to begin formatting the disk.
When completed, you will have a bootable floppy disk.


For CD Rom or DVD disks


Open the software that you use to burn or write files to the CD-rom or DVD drive.

Click on "Make a Data CD or DVD." Insert a blank CD-R or DVD-R disk into the drive.

Look for the option to "Make this disk bootable." You may have to scroll over the various icons displayed to find this option. Click on the option.

Burn the CD or DVD as usual. Once completed, this disk can be used to boot your computer.

hope this helps

My software will n ot load on to my computer


It is possible that Cd Rom drive is not functioning correctly. Do you have a second system you can test the Cd on to verify if it is the CD or your CD Rom drive that is bad.

If this doesn't resolve the issue I have 2 other ideas. :
1. have you run out of disk space? Go to My Computer and check. If you are under 1 GB of free space, try doing a clean up of your system with Disk Cleanup. To open Disk Cleanup click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.

2. Windows is corrupted and you need to try either a repair install or a fresh install.
To repair windows corrupt files you need to have a system utility software RegInOut

Cd rom. on comp. dont work can idown load software on line somehow


Spend about $35 to purchase a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

Or, take a USB memory-stick, and the product CD/DVD disk, to another computer.
Copy all the files from the media onto the memory-stick.

On your computer, use the files on the memory-stick to install the software.

Os instalation will not load


Hi Dobssand, the most common reason for a CD-ROM (With a Windows CD in it) does not start to load is the motherboard's bios is not set correctly. While in the bios go to the title Boot & enter boot order. This is a common boot order for a PC.
1st boot device = [Floppy disk drive]
2nd boot device = [CD-ROM drive] (Model number of the CD-ROM drive).
3rd boot device = [Primary Hard Disk Drive] (Model number of drive).

Second most common reason is the data cable to the CD-ROM drive is loose or not fully connected either at the CD-ROM or at the motherboard. (Check it).
If you choose not to enter your bios, you can still get the CD-ROM drive to boot the Win CD in this fashion. Load the Win CD into the CD-ROM drive. Power off the system. Than power on the system & start to press the F8 key once every two seconds. Windows "Please select boot device:" window will open. Using your keyboards up & down arrow keys high-light the CD-ROM drive that has the win CD in it & press the enter key. Windows should start to load. If you receive an error message stating windows can not find your hard disk drive. Than you must enter your bios & go to the title Boot. Your hard disk drive is not listed in the boot order section. Worst case! Your hard disk drive may be faulty. Find the manufactures name printed on a large white sticker on once side of the HDD. Go to the manufactures web site & download their drive setup software so you can create a bootable floppy disk. This will allow you to check/test the HDD & format it for a windows installation.

Or is this not the issue you are having?

Good luck!

Does not come on


Hi, lets make sure you're hard drive is ok first.
The hard drive LED light staying on means the drive has some issues.
Enter you're bios by pressing the Delete every two seconds until the main bios menu loads. (Hope fully you'll have display on you're monitor while in the bios screen). (Instruction on how to move about in the bios is listed at the bottom of the menu.
Highlight Standard CMOS Features & press enter to open. Check if you're IDE Primary Master hard drive is listed. If yes & windows is not loading there may be a problem with the File Allocation Table, known as the FAT. Load you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive. Exit the bios. The system will auto restart. As the system begins to start up, begin pressing the F8 key every two seconds. This should bring up the, "Please select boot device" window. Highlight the CD-ROM by using the up/down arrow keys to the drive that has the windows CD in it & press enter. If windows does not see you're hard disk drive than there is something wrong with the drive. The drive just may have reached its end. To be 100% sure this is the case you'll need to download & create a bootable manufactures floppy disk that will check you're primary master drive. Look on the large white sticker on the drive & find its maker. Example: Seagate, Western Digital, Maxtor. ECT. Go to their web site & download their setup or tools & utilities software for creating a bootable floppy disk. Once created insert it into you're floppy drive & restart or start up the PC. The manufactures floppy software will load. (This software works out side of windows in a Dos-like mode). Instructions for testing/using will be listed on the manufactures web site. It’s very possible the floppy software can breath new life to you're drive. The bad news it will also erase you're drive. If there is a major issue that can not be repaired by the floppy disk than you will have done what good PC repair shop would have tried. Buy a new IDE drive. Let’s just hope the software can repair/fix the hard drive.

Good luck dintoe!
If you run into trouble just let me know & I'll help you through it.

Installation


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 http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm 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
