Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Trying to format Windows 98 into this machine and it already has ME on it, has an E and F drive, and I want to put Windows 98 on it. I have a Windows 98 floppy disk, put it in, prompted me with 3 options: I chose option1 with CD-ROM support and then it comes to a black screen with a:/ and I now I dont know what to type in? Please advise, thank you
If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.
