She did try the Windows CD but couldn't get it to boot from there, it might work now.

As far as the DR Dos thing, that sounds like maybe you don't have the same Ultimate Boot CD

Is it the UBCD For Windows version 3.0? Keep in mind that I am not one of the forum experts so if they can solve your problem that is great, I am just trying to help :whistling:

Take a look at this:

If you upgraded from Windows98 or WindowsME, there might still be hope :whistling:
Otherwise, i fear you'll have to reinstall

I may be covering old ground here, but bare with me...

Are you offered the choice to boot to either operating system when you boot up?

Go HERE, download, and create the Boot Disk Set for the original operating system installed on your machine. The download links are about half way down the page. This will require 6 floppy diskettes. Let me know when you have completed this step.

It will require 6 floppies. To create the set, double click the file you downloaded and insert a floppy disk when it asks for one. It will tell you each time when it needs a new diskette until all 6 have been created. Be sure to label each as they will have to be used in order.

Don't try to copy it to a floppy. The file you downloaded is an application to create a floppy disk set...it requires six (6) floppy disks.

Double click on the file to start the application...it will ask you to insert a floppy disk. When it finishes the first one, it will ask you to insert another one, and so on...until it has created all six floppies.

Hi wannabe1
When i double click on the application the only options that it gives me is to run or cancel but it copied the first part but did'nt ask for the next disk and i don't want to run it on this computer as it is not mine is there another way to do it i am following all your instructions as closely as i can thanks wannabe1
the floppy drive on this one is an external drive.

It's not actually going to put anything on the machine you are using, it will just extract a bunch of files and put them on the floppy disks. Once you have created the floppies and we know they work, you can delete the downloaded file. I hope it will work on an external floppy drive...I've never tried making the set using one, but see no reason it wouldn't work.

You'll have to click on the "Run" button to create the floppy set. Please try the operation again... :whistling:

Great! :whistling:

We'll be using these disks to run Recovery Console so we can look at a few things on the machine that won't run.

Do you know how to set the boot priority on the machine you are locked out of? If you do, we'll need to set it so the floppy drive is the first one in the boot order.
