Get yourself a Win98 or WinME bootdisk, either with CDROM support
and boot to a flashing a: prompt. I like WinME because you get a
newer version of FDisk-yes I like using Fdisk.
The boot Disk will tell you what the drive letter of your new cdrom
Put the W2K CD in your cdrom drive.
Do a cd f: (for Change Directory)-replace f: with whatever the drive
letter is for your cdrom drive provided by the bootdisk. Lets say it is G
type cd g: and hit enter
Type setup or find the setup.exe file and hit enter.
Use the W2K disk to reformat the C drive with the system files.
I would reformat then reinstall W2K so you know W2K is going on
a fresh drive. Just MO...........
If you feel comfortable with FDisk do a format c: /s to format the
C drive with the system files and when done reboot and you should
reboot to a flashing c: prompt.
After you reformatted with FDisk or the W2K CD and you can reboot
to a flashing c
rompt put the W2K disk in your cdrom drive, change directory cd g: and hit enter and run setup. Or if you still dont have a
cdrom yet, reboot again with your bootdisk but only for a cdrom drive
letter and not a reformat, put W2K disk in cdrom drive and run setup to install W2K.
