Hi Kent, You did not state what Operating System you are running on your computer.

What you need to do is find someone with the same Operating System that you have on your computer, and get them to make you a bootup disk. This should solve your problem.

Good luck and have a great day.

What operating system are you using?
If you created a ERD or startup disk when you installed the system use it to boot into FDISK.
Your boot disk would help also,if it is available.
If you can use a computer with the same operating system you cancreate a startup disk.
Go to Control Panel,double click the Add/Remove Programs,click on StartUp Disk,and insert floppy,then click the button to create.
Hope this Helps

If you don't know for sure what operating system you are using, when you get to a prompt type "ver" and press enter. This will tell you what version your OS is.

Then you can go to www.bootdisk.com and download the appropriate one for your system
