How did you reload windows 98? Did you use a CD or have you just used a boot floppy disk?

Posted on Aug 27, 2008

  • Dadpie Sep 03, 2008

    Ok, all the floppy disk does is load the CD driver you need. You now need to run Setup from the Windows 98 CD.

    To do this, boot from the floppy again, insert the CD into your CD drive, change to the CD drive on your PC (usually drive D) by typing "cd D:" at the prompt which looks like "C:\>".

    When the prompt changes to "D:\>" then type "setup".

    You should now be able install Windows 98. Good luck.

My operating system was accidentally deleted from my Asus netbook. I want to reboot it with a bootable pendrive but it doesnt work. It gives the message, NTLDR is missing,press ctrl+alt+del


Below is Microsofts solution to your error. Reload the OS with a Microsoft CD format it completely not the fast format option reload from sctratch. If you have no CDrom use an external.



Systems hard disk drive has FAT32 file system. Computer hard disk drive has INT-13 extensions with a system-ID type of 0C in the partition table The heads value in the FAT32 BIOS Pattern Block (BPB) is inaccurate.
To resolve the error message "NTLDR is Missing" follow the below steps: Boot the computer with a Windows 95 or Windows 98 Startup diskette or another bootable diskette with sys.com on it.
At the A:\> prompt type: sys c: <press enter> After pressing enter you should receive the prompt "System Transferred". Once the file system has been transferred reboot the computer without the diskette and attempt to reproduce the error.

My presario c500 keeps asking me to register every time I reboot. I've filled it out a dozen times, but the request keeps coming back. Got any ideas?


you can check your startup processes or programs by holding the windows key on your keyboard and the 'r' key. type in msconfig and press enter. go to the tab that says "start up"...there may be something in there that says "reminder app" or something similar. Just uncheck that option and click apply and ok. hope this helps

My Toshiba satellite A25-s207 laptop will not boot up


Does it restart and then ask to go into windows safe mode, things like that. If so here something to try.

I can help, Leave everything to me!!!!


Im asuming its doing what is called, " The windows boot loop" or as well call it at work anyways.

Dels are known for this.

let me guess, it starts up normally, gets to the windows startup but asks you to pick between 4 different start up options like safe mode.


Do you have your original CD that came with it, or at least a windows XP CD?

You will need one.

What you do is,

1st: Bot from CD. Start the machine with the Winxp CD in the drive, hit F12 for boot options, or whatever key function it is. Do this as soon as you turn it on,

2: select " Boot from CD" and press any key when it askes if you want to boot from CD.

3: It will load like your doing a fresh install of windows. Thats alright, its normal and no it wont re-install windows at this point.

4: Once it loads, it will have some options. Pres " R" for repair.

It will go out and to the command prompt after about 5 seconds.

5: once at the command prompt, type in exactly ( CHKDSK C: /P ) Dont include the ( ) . Then press "Enter key "

6: after it runs the disk check, normally about 3 to 5 minutes, It will finishand go back to C:/


Just type ( EXIT ), Enter key, and let it reboot.

you can remove the disk now or later, shouldnt matter, It will go to the options screen like before, but just let it default to the normal startup, or hit enter.

Windows should now load fine and you shouldnt get that message at startup anymore.


WHY THIS HAPPENED?, you may be asking.

For some reason, certain Dell Hardware and software conflict, usually when you have installed some new program, or for just no reason.

Your Boot Up files get corrupt or cleared and windows needs those to start.

What you did was re-installed those windows files.


Now copy and paste into a word document and print it out in case it happens again. Not likley but it could.

This works with any computer experienceing this issue, usually, unless there is something worse going on.

You can help other now that you know how and become a hero, make sure to charge them $10 though for your time:)


Let me know if this doesnt work and we can try something else.

Good Luck.

Frozen Toshiba P100


Try This. Restart your computer and as soon as it boots up tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see windows advanced options menu. select safe mode. when it asks you for the operating system just hit enter. as soon as it boots to safe mode do this. click start> run> type msconfig then hit enter. On the system configuration utility click on the startup tab then select disable all. Click apply then close. restart your computer again. It may be a corrupted startup program that is preventing your computer to boot up properly.

Install Windows XP without a CD drive


You'll need to assign the CD drive (which should show up as USB devicein BIOS or setup) as first boot device, if capable on your model/Computer. After you press power button, you should see a menu or dialog that shows something like 'press F2' or 'Delete' to enter setup. Once in setup, you should navigate thru until you find boot options or something of that nature. Select 'Boot from CD' or ' USB Device'. You should now insert your XP CD into the drive, close the tray, then choose 'Save'. It should now let you boot from the XP CD. At the first screen, you should select 'R' for repair console. It will then ask you to select an installation, type a '1' and then press the 'Enter' key. Next line will ask you to type an Administrator password. If you have one, type it, then press Enter. If no password, just tap the Enter key. Now, at the prompt, type CHKDSK C: /r as in (C: a space /r). then tap the Enter. It shoild now attempt to repair your Windows 2000 installation. When it finishes, reboot, go back into Setup and change first boot device to hard drive. Select Save and reboot LT. Have fun!
