OS Win98SE won't load

By still_learntoo ·
Reformated HD, Win98SE won't load. OS begins, Black box says "BOOTSECTOR write!! Virus:Continue (Y/N)?" Neither Y or N brings results. Only three-finger salute.

This may be due to a setting in your BIOS.
Some M/B's come with a BIOS Anti-Virus function.
Part of the AV will check whether anything or anyone is trying to write to the disk's boot sector.

You might want to check the settings in your BIOS and disable the A/V function.
