No FAT32EBD.EXE file
LThomson Sep-02-00 04:03 PM
I have recently learned that I should be using this utility to create my emergency disks for Win98. Unfortunately, I have a new HP Pavilion which did not come with a Win98 CD, where the FAT32EBD.EXE file is apparently available. I have checked the recovery disks, but no file there either. I have searched the internet as well, and while there are many references to this utility, I cannot find it anywhere to download.

Can anyone help?

The files on the Windows CD may be on your hard disk or on the HP recovery CD. Use the Windows Explorer to search for FAT32EBD.EXE (Tools, Find, Files or Folders). Also, many HP computers will boot directly to the recovery CD from which a recovery, etc. can be done. A recovery disk is a Startup disk, which is a bootable floppy with various software tools. There is more than one way to make a Startup floppy. For instructions see http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/software/windows/startup/startup.htm. Larry

Hi Larry, thanks a bunch. I had looked everywhere on my hard drive, as well as on the recovery CDs that HP supplied, and no FAT32EBD files.

I have been to your notes on creating a manual diskette - I like it. It looks very resilient - better than the other automatic choices that don't provide everything that you need for rebooting in an emergency.

Thanks again.
