Question about Operating Systems
Can you help me out?
Hey sinn - First thing to do is get into the BIOS and set it to boot from the CD. When your system boots there is a quick message like press F2 or Delete to enter setup. Go to the boot sequence and make sure the cd is listed to boot before your hard drive. Make sure your Windows cd in the cd drive. If it boots, then select a new install. Then delete all the partitions on the hard drive (C:)and create a new one. Then select it to install the OS on. Sounds complicated, but take your time and read every screen carefully before you press "Enter".
If you can't get it to boot, then go to http://bootdisk.com and download a boot diskette image. Any Windows 9X will do, just make sure it has CD support included. Create the diskette(s), change to the CD drive and run setup.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet just add a comment letting me know you need more help and I'll be glad to assist you. Let me know what happens. Thanks.
