Default hard drive booting

I have a question, hopefully you can help me out. I have an older computer that I installed Windows 98 on. Well I had to replace the hard drive because of bad sectors. When I turned on my computer it did not complete the boot process, this is after replacing the drive and installing Windows 98 What do I need to do?

First i would clear your CMOS, then install windows all over again. Just make sure your HDD is compatible with your board. Im sure this computer runs IDE drives. Check your jumpers too.

Finished With TF.

try to reinstall your windows 98 and then check your bios and make sure that your hard drive boots first..
