Error while Win 98SE Installation

By Shanghai Sam ·
After two unsuccessful attempts of installing Win 98SE on a PC having trouble(Page fault in explorer..)in starting Win98 following message is displayed;
"Could not find version of previous installaton...." and the installation couldnot be continued. Previous win98 was on PC. Where can the information of previous installation be available and in what file? By default, it is searching in a some root directory which is not visible by DOS commands like dir & attrib.

Why don't you just reformat the whole drive and start from scratch. If you still are getting the same message, then use fdisk, delete the partition, then recreate it, and that should **** away anything on the hard drive that is being referenced by the new installation.
