I took the bios batterry out of computer for 15min. The computer now has the settings screen. I also used the floppy with boot98se.exe. This allowed me to delete and and set up the different DOS partitions. I was'nt sure on the size to proportion each one. Mine I believe had 19469, but gave primary 12000,extended 4000 and the rest to logical.
After that I installed Windows 2000 Pro. It ran till it came to A: but I wasn't sure what to do at this point, as if I had to type something in.
If I'm going to run Windows 2000Pro and this computer was designed for Windows NT and 98, should I have used the boot for 2000 which is" makeboot.exe" or was boot98.exe ok to use to put Windows 2000 in as the operating drive.
