Windows 2000 installation problem

By Togbui ·
I installed the upgrade version of Windows 2000 onto Windows 98 but could not get system to boot up. I'll now like to format the whole drive but cannot get the C prompt. Any help?

Windows 2000 installation problem

First, go into your setup and change your bootup from hard disk to diskette and try booting up
from a dos boot disk. During the boot process, if
you press f5, you can break the dos install and
execute the format.exe from the a:\dos diskette.

Then you can come back over top of that with your W2k install, but remember to change your bootup from diskette to CD-ROM.

Try these steps:
1. Make sure you do not have any Hardware problems, and that your computer can boot past POST.(where you get the beep when restarting the PC)(for the next step edit BIOS to bootup on floppy drive, then reboot)
2. then Bootup using your win98 boot disk, and choose "w/ CD rom support".
3. format drive C:
4. reboot.
5. edit your BIOS to have it boot up to CDRom.
6. if you can't, have a friend create the boot diskettes (4 of them) from the win2k cd.
7. reboot using those floppies and you should be on your way to installation.

(need any help email me)
