Clean install of W98
turve Dec-03-01 10:02 AM
My friend has passed his machine to me to sort out! It gets as far as starting windows, the desktop appears, and then it just locks.

I have started it in safe mode, used scandisk, antivirus, registry checker etc and can't find any problems, so I suggested that I simply reinstall windows for him. Problem is he doesn't have a boot disk, so I'm not really sure how to go about this.

Can anybody advise please?
