To resolve this issue:
  1. If you are upgrading Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition, follow the troubleshooting steps that are described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article: 310064 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310064/ ) HOW TO: Troubleshoot Windows XP Problems During Installation When You Upgrade from Windows 98 or Windows Me Test to determine if the issue is resolved. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.
  2. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP:
    1. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
    2. If Windows automatically detects the CD-ROM, click Install Windows to start the Windows XP Setup Wizard. If Windows does not automatically detect the CD-ROM, click Start, click Run, type CD-ROM drive letter:\setup.exe, and then click OK.
    3. Press ENTER.
    4. Click New Installation, and then click Next.
    5. Follow the instructions on your screen.
  3. When you receive the "Press F6 to load SCSI/Raid Drivers" prompt, press F7 to bypass Advanced Configuration and PowerInterface (ACPI) detection.
  4. Finish the installation of Windows XP.

I have /had Windows 98 on my computer and a friend installed windows xp. I tried to get rid of Xp but lost Win 98, I have the original RestoreDisk for my compaq but it will not let me install to get back...


Have you tried booting the system with the restore disk, well it should reformat the system before it installs a fresh copy of windows 98 so you should back-up data before proceeding and check the boot sequence in your bios, set the first boot device to CD/DVD.

I hope this helps:)

Big problem no windows 98 un-locking Key


if the windows xp isn't an upgrade from 98 then it will install on your computer over the 98 without problem, bearing in mind that all information on the disk will be lost once you format it with the disk, but if it's an upgrade disk you might have to check with your friends to see if they have the same version of 98, the other thing if the computer came with 98 installed the product key should be on the case on the back or the side is normal postioning for this altho some techs use to put in the inside of the case.
hope this helps.

Black screen says windows is corrupt


Many of these black or blue windows can be caused by a virus or corrupted files of the operative system. If the windows has an error code, we can check in the Microsoft website for a more specific problem. If the windows doesn't have an error code, you may load windows in save mode (press F8 on Win 98-XP) so the PC loads and backup all your important data because you may reinstall Windows and in that process you will lost your data.

I have the Windows 98 disk not have lost the key codes, I am trying to reinstall this onto a new hard drive with no operating system so I can then upgrade to windows xp, help anyone?


You don't need a windows 98 disk to install XP. It will load directly from your Cd drive. You have to set the bios to be the first boot disk. It is much easier to install XP on an empty drive than to upgrade.
