Windows 98 error message

By luckystiph ·
I recently had a hard drive crach, and reformated my C drive, which only holds the Windows 98 operating system, my programs are on the D partition. After I installed Windows 98 again, and started loading back program I get an error message, while booting up that says "$(SR_ALERT)" Then, underneath, "$(SR_ALERT_NORESOURCE)" I get an OK button to click, then it goes away, but comes up whenever I reboot. Any ideas on how to get rid of it???

You are sharing resources on your hard drives.You have installed the operating system on both your partitions open the Explorer window,locate the shared resource,which has the dollar sign,right click and delete the share.If it another resource open device manager and manually set the resources.

To eloborate on the first answer:

I've never had this setup or error message, but as the first answer states, it sounds as if you have a "share" that no longer valid. As a rule of thumb, you should always have a backup of your registry. Then whenyou have a situation like you have, all you would need to do is reinstall Windows and restore your registry. Good Luck
