Problem in booting...
csk1153 Feb-14-02 06:48 PM
I bought a pc on ebay which had no OS installed. I wanted to install windows98 on it, so formatted the C drive. But now when I put my
boot disk and start the computer, it tries to
read the boot disk and stalls there. The screen
remains blank and is struck there....
Any inputs on what to do and what I did wrong.
thanks in advance

Try booting up from your Windows CD then.I've gone through dozens of boot disks in my time, they seem to go bonkers on me from time to time.

I did try this by putting the windows CD, but it
does the same thing.

I created a new boot disk, and when I powered the
computer on I got the following errror message:

NTLDR is missing.

so any advice on what to do next...?

Set the CMOS Setup so that it boots to the floppy drive first. http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/software/windows/startup/startup.htm. Larry
