Windows 98 install problems
i have an old IBM Thinkpad 760E with swapable floppy and cdrom drives. i am trying to install windows 98. I ran into problems getting it to read the cdrom when i inserted it instead of the floppy. Well i finally got it to read the cd rom drive with a few helpful instructions from a different post. when i turn the laptop on it asks if i wanna boot with cdrom support and i select yes. it flashes the win98 screen like it is booting up and gettin ready to install and then it says not ready reading drive a: abort, retry, fail. what is the problem now? any help would be greatly appreciated. it is starting to get frustrating. when i abort it says" the windows 98 startup disk could not create a temp. drive for the diagnostic tools. this may be because this computer has less than the minimum required extended memory.
