Re: Win 98 Upgrade...Problem
Just a quick update.
I got a win98 recovery disk from a guy in my personal finance class, ir did nothing. I used the XP Pro boot disk, they did nothing. Prior to this we had a conversation saying if I could get it up and running then fine, if not they are going to go and get a new one tomorrow from this place I sent them. It wouldn't read my cd or my floppy. So I got ****ed and I went into the BIOS to check everything. There was no optionfor Advanced CMOS or anything so I just went through evey option and found the boot sequence under BIOS setup. Thats where it was set to boot only from C drive. Which I don't understand why the tech who installed the new hdd and the clean install of win98 would set it to boot only from C drive. So I set it to boot from A>D>C, and then it picked up my disk and I removed the semi install of win2k and whatever was left of win98.
Windows installed installed smoothly and is running great. I actually found out that there was 8GB hard drive insead of 4GB, I know its not a lot of space but its better then installing windows on a 4GB hdd. So now the computer runs fine.
They are still planning on getting a new desktop. Basically they said just to try to get it up and going, at least temporarily, and they will pick up a new system in a bit.
So thanks everyone for you input I really appreciate it.
