I am trying to install windows 98 se on a computer and once i get through with fdisk and formatting the c drive with the system files, by means of starting from the a prompt with this command a: format c:\s i go to the c drive to make sure all the system files i need are there which they are. I then go back to a: and use the cdsetup command. It takes me through the setup screen for the cd files. I reboot the computer as needed and when i restart and try to switch to drive d: (the cd drive) i get the error invalid media type. No matter how many times i fdisk and reformat or do the cdsetup command i continue to get this error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure that i am not missing a step somewhere in here. Look foward to the replys.
