Installing Windows

By sherylbondy ·
I have an old Pentium on which I formatted the C drive. When I attempted to install Windows 98, the computer wasn't recognizing the CDrom. When I tried to install a Win95 upgrade from floppy, I received a message stating that this was an upgrade and that no operating system exists. Without the use of the CDrom, I can't install the Windows98 operating system. I have gone into the Bios and changed my boot sequence, but the CDrom still isn't recognized. How can I get the operating system on the hard drive?

If the cdrom is an IDE then boot from a win98
boot disk. The oak drivers provided should
work. If it is a propritory cdrom then you need
the drivers for that drive. This type of drive was
usually hooked to the sound card or a card
just forit. If this is the case I would get an ide
and loose the troublemaker.

Good Luck Lee
