Which one do you want an answer for?

More info needed:

What make and model of computer?
What is the exact error message?

Why do you want a Windows 98 disc if you've got an installation of W2K ???

What is the exact error you are getting? and at what stage of boot up are you receiving the error?

What is the purpose of the windows 98 install disk?

Kind regards,

You likely have a boot disk in a drive. Remove any cd/dvd/floppy disks from all drives, reboot. Did it work?

If no, then it appears your Win2k install may be bad, or your HDD is going out. In this case, get your data off of your drive. I suggest putting it in a USB caddy to try to recover data.

As for the 98 disk, this is really odd. Win98 will not read the disk for a 2k install unless you formatted with FAT instead of NTFS (default).

If the 98 disk is for another reason, like a different question, you should have stated that. But for a Win 98 disk, try ebay. Last time I looked they were like $50 (several years ago).
