98se on new HD IDE
Installed a Maxtor 80G HD IDE to a pc I got for my kids. Downloaded the maxblast 4 software from maxtor onto a floppy for install - all good did the install procedure.
Asked me what OS I wanted to use, clicked 98se. It asked for boot disk in floppy - I did, all good.
Asked me to reboot with OS disk in cdrom. I did. The disk wasn't found!!!
All I'm left with is a - C:\>
Can't get anything to happen. I don't really know what to do with a C:\>. Anything I put in and press enter with gets a "Bad command or file name." message. fdisk,format,setup etc... all give the same. The only one that puts something on the screen is C:\>dir, which says this -
COMMAND COM 93,890 04-23-99 10:22p
HIMEM SYS 33,191 04-23-99 10:22p
OAKCDROM SYS 41,302 04-23-99 10:22p
3 file(s) 168,383 bytes
0 dir(s) 78,140.31 MB free
Been up all night, (literally) trying to sort it on the net.
Thanks in advance.
