I am currently reinstalling win98 on older computer... my original bootdisk had drivers for cdrom on it, but that boot-floppy was deleted in error, so now i have a non os system with non working cdrom. I created a bootdisk from www.bootdisk.com
and located the cdrom driver for the oti-91x cdrom from oak technology and put that on my boot disk. I reboot system with bootdisk and it doesn't recognize cdrom. I have tried different drivers for oak technology cdroms and it never accepts it. Do i need to do something in bios to reset cdrom. I have tried unplugging cdrom and replugging it in system, but just won't recognize cdrom. I assume, without the cdrom working, i can't reload win98, because my floppy is the only working device. Do I need to add something in the autoexec.bat and config.sys on boot floppy. I can send a view of my current data in my auto and config .sys if needed. Please help. Thanks By the way, my hard drive has already been reformatted, so my data is gone on hd.
