I have this HUGE 2 gig HD, and when I am trying to install 98 SE on the comp, it tells me it has a boot sector virus...I have wiped the drive by fdisking and formatting, i have also wiped it in windows. I ran a virus scan on it. I have done the norton system works on it and it tells me its all good.
I have a couple of questions for you did you debug the drive? If not you could try that. Also you can try to fdisk the mbr(master boot record by adding the switch /mbr at the end of fdisk
just type in FDISK /MBR
But if you havent debugged you will have to do that. Debugging is the only way i know of to get rid of a boot sector virus just plain formatting and fdisk will not get rid of it. Tell me if you need the debug script.
You could also try adding more than one partition and trapping the virus in a small section of the disk. I don't quite know how to do that but my brother did that with a drive. Then after he got 98 installed and antivirus, they were able to get rid of it....
Just a thought....
