How Do I Create A Windows 98 Boot Disk Wit out Auto exec.Bat And Con fig.Sys?From Other - Computers Forum:
How do I create a windows 98 boot disk wit out auto exec.bat and con fig.sys? I need a windows 98 boot disk without these files on a disk to boot my PC up.
Answer: An excellent feature of Windows 98 is its boot diskette. Using Windows to create you a Windows 98 boot diskette will give you all the needed files as well as CD-ROM support. To create a Windows 98 boot diskette, click Start / Settings / Control Panel / double-click the Add Remove programs icon / click the Start up Disk and create disk. Alternatively, to create a Windows 98 boot diskette manually from Windows, click Start / Shutdown and choose the option to restart the computer in a MS-DOS prompt. At the prompt, type: cd\windows\command Once at the C:\DOS directory, skip to copying files. Once the diskette has been formatted and the system has been transferred, you should be returned to your original directory. In this directory, type: copy format*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy fdisk*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy mscdex*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy sys*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy edit*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy qbasic*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] (Win 95/98 users skip this line) copy debug*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy himem*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] copy emm386*.* a: [PRESS ENTER] Once you have copied the above files, create an auto exec.bat and a con fig.sys. Get to the floppy drive by typing A:, once at the floppy drive, type: copy con auto exec.bat [PRESS ENTER] @echo off [PRESS ENTER] LH A:\MSCDEX.EXE /D:CDROM [PRESS ENTER] (this line is used for your CD-ROM drive). LH A:\MOUSE.* [PRESS ENTER] (skip line if you did not copy mouse file, the * is either says / com). Press and hold CTR + Z - this should return ^Z. Once this is displayed, press enter to copy the file. copy con con fig.sys [PRESS ENTER] device=a:\himem.sys dos=high,umb device=a:\emm386.exe noems files=30 buffers=20 devicehigh=a:\oakcdrom.sys /d:CDROM (this line is used for your CD-ROM drive). Press and hold CTR + Z - this should return ^Z. Once this is displayed, press enter to copy the file.

How Can I Install Windows Onto My Computer?From Other - Computers Forum:
How can I install Windows onto my computer? the last time I did it, I had no problems, I can normally do it hassle free but this time it's not going to plan. I'm using a Window 98 boot disk because that's the easiest way I know of doing it, but when it's all booted up and I type in E:/Setup (E: is the CD drive I'm using, that's not the problem) it says "This program cannot run in Dos". I've tried just booting up the computer with the CD alone and it just says "Missing Operating System", and I've tried installing Windows 98, onto the computer, so that I could then upgrade it to P but I got the same cannot run in Dos message. Any ideas? thanks alto. I've changed the order in the BIOS to CD, DD then Floppy and I'm still having the same problem. It's not running straight from the CD and it won't run using the boot disk. Neither 98 or P will boot. it turns out I had the Bios settings wrong, sorry, I should of checked that first. Thanks for the answer though everyone, much appreciated, bye.
Answer: MAKE SURE THAT YOU BACK UP ALL IMPORTANT DATA TO A CD OR OTHER REMOVABLE DEVICE (IE SUB DRIVE) OR TO A NETWORK DRIVE (IE A SERVER)! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Firstly, start your PC without any disks in the removable drives (eg CD drive, floppy drive). Then look for something that tells you what to press to gain access to your BIOS settings - this usually happens right at the start (when the black screen and system settings appear). On most motherboards, it's F but it does change. When you're into the BIOS settings, you can navigate the settings using the arrow keys. For all other navigation keys it usually tells you somewhere (mine says them on the bottom of each screen). Next, change the Boot Device Priority so that it boots like so: 1. CD Drive 2. Hard Drive 3. Floppy Drive Please note that these aren't going to be the names of your drives - they all change depending on what make/model they are. For example, my Hard Drive is not called "Hard Drive", instead it's called "MAXTOR PP20514300GB". When you've done that, save changes and restart. Once you've restarted (do this as soon as the PC shows the system settings [ie the black screen with white writing]) insert your OS' disc - I recommend putting the P disc in and installing that. The P Setup will load from the disc after it's loaded all of the necessary components. The P Setup (I'll call it Apse from now on!) will give you three choices. 1: Install Windows XP 2: Repair Windows XP 3: Quit and restart Press 1 on your keyboard. At the next screen, choose to format your hard disk, but don't do the Quick mode! I think it's Option 2 you need to choose. Then, wait for Apse to format your disc. Formatting the disc just makes it easier for Windows to write itself to your Hard Drive. Follow everything through, and then after that it will tell you to restart! DO NOT TAKE OUT YOUR Apse CD AT THIS POINT! When the PC has restarted, do not boot from disk again (it will ask you to confirm if you want to boot from disk, just ignore it!) and XPSe's GUI should load (this time it looks like a normal program!). Follow the steps through and voila - P is installed! Good luck and if you need any more assistance just post back here! :D
My Computer Is Not Booting Up, What Could Be The Cause ?From Other - Hardware Forum:
My computer is not booting up, what could be the cause ? The computer powers on, but does not boot up. There's nothing showing on the monitor. I tried hitting F to boot up in safe mode, but still nothing. I also tried putting in my restore CD, and a Windows 98 boot disk, with no luck.
Answer: Most monitors have a monitor check you can run. For mine, I hold the power button in when turning it on and I get color bars to show up. If the monitor is working properly, it is likely you have either an issue with your memory or your motherboard. The likely culprit is the motherboard. If you are still running Win, it would almost be cheaper just to replace your computer.

What Should I Do After Inserting Windows 98 Boot Disk I Get This Prompt: [Dr-Dos] A:\>?From Software Forum:
What should I do after inserting Windows 98 boot disk I get this prompt: [dr-dos] a:\>? My laptop no longer recognizes the hard drive, so it no longer boots. I was going to use a boot CD to see what is going on, but after this prompt, I don't know what to do. I would like to find out if my hard drive has gone bad. Can someone please help me?
Answer: first try Dir c:\ and see if it sees your HUD. if it doesn't try running Fisk and seeing what if any information it has about your HUD partitions. I assume it does still appear in your bios info?
