Your idea that the gui thing isnt working makes sense..
This is a more detailed version what happens and what ive done to fix it so far.(tried doing anyway).
Computer boots up and flashes the Windows 98 load screen for 2 seconds
The computer then returns to dos/command screen and it says
Microsot Windows 98 blah blah..like it recognized it
then on the next line it says
i can search directories and it seems like everything is there.
I have tried "exit" and "WIN"...nothing happens.. "exit" doesnt return bad command name but it also doesnt do anything..just skips to next line.
I have tried booting to a boot disk and have done fdisk/mbr aswell as sys c: ..both do nothing.
So you GUI thing seems to make sense since evrything seems to work but it just wont load the winodws GUI..it defaults to dos.
so how do I (if i even can), edit the msdos.sys file from dos? or can i replace that one by one i can download of the net? or soemthign?
Thx for any further help
