If you did the install by formatting C drive, it was a clean install and all other data from Win 98 will be gone. Also XP uses NTFS rather than only FAT. It becomes a real mess when you try to install XP over 98 without starting on a clean slate.

How To Recover My Data.?


Dear Rabeesh,

I'm guessing that you've formatted hard drive partitions containing Windows 7. If so, the drive will eventually become RAW as it contains the system files and the OS.
You need to run the professional partition recovery software (http://goo.gl/5eEjN), capable to recover RAW partitions from your hard drive. Follow the link mentioned above and try the software. It comes in demo version, so you can try it for free and once assured, you can go for premium version to recover all your data.

I accidentally deleted all the partition when i am formatting the system partition how can i reinstall the OS now where i don't have recovery media.Is there any way to recover the deleted partition?


You cannot recover a lost or deleted partition by simply creating it in Windows Disk Manager (this can only make things worse). To recover partitions you will need partition recovery software Today there are TONS of partition recovery software on the Internet. I am going to give a short review of such software.
Here are some main kinds of partition recovery software:
  • It can be paid or free
  • It can run under Windows or only under DOS (usually from a boot CD)
  • It can give you the possibility to copy files off the lost partition (preferred) or just patch your hard drive (pretty much dangerous).
  • Active Partition Recovery DOS/WindowsPrice: $36Easiness to use: Average
    Safety: Average
    Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: No
    Link: http://www.partition-recovery.com/price.htm
  • or with this free software TestDiskPrice: FreeEasiness to use: Not easy
    Safety: Dangerous!
    Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: Yes

  • but still you can reinstall os on your drive by creating partition..(if no need to recover files)
  • during setup press c key to create partition and put size to what ever you want for C depends on your hdd size.for example your hdd is 80gb,then put size 30000 for C ,then enter
  • the remaining size is for D:scroll down D and press c key to create partion for D:then enter
  • wait till the setup finish

98 loading error message


When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.

Remove all Partions And Use Windows XP to create partition during Installion.

Fix Ya

Best Of LUCK.
