My friend is trying to boot up an old Compaq computer. Everytime it boots up it says, "Invalid System Disk. Remove and press any key to continue." Problem is, there is no disk in there.
We have tried totally disconnecting the A drive (totally taking it out of the computer) and it still says it. We have a Windows 98 disk that we are trying to have it boot up from ad it does, but then it says a whole bunch of error messages saying that the config.sys file is corrupted.
Is there any way to fix this? I would be very grateful for any ideas!
See, What that means is that there is no operating system on the harddrive, and it have nothing to do with the disk or A: drive.
The system disk is your OS on the HD. If you have the Win98 CD, then you can boot the computer again!! And you can also try formatting the hard drive.
you would have to go to another computer running windows millenium or windows 98/95 and make a startup disk. it sounds like you have quite a problem though. i wouldn't be surprised if a new startup disk doesn't solve your problem.
