i seem to have a very interesting problem ....
someting akin to having a whole bottle of coke ... but not able to drink it..cuz u dont have a bottle opener ..
it all stared when my brother made a really horrible mistake of installing window me.....i know..really stupid mistake...i was quite :mad: &
but anyway what happend is that though he has done a clean install
....and put in C:\(my original 98 is in D:\)...windows me has just made 98 disappear ...my guess is that it has overwritten the MBR...
all file of 98 are intact and have not been touched...
here are the steps that i have done till now and failed.
1) first thing i did was place a boot.ini file with the following info.. in my primary partition (note no boot.ini file was present before which was )
multi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows 98"
C:\="Microsoft Windows me"
now even after this the options menu did not come even after pressing 98....
note: i have my ori 98 in partition on my second harddrive
2) Now that that failed i realised that me had destroyed the mbr so i half installed
XP which fixed up the mbr to use the boot.ini..
now when i selected the 98 option it gave me an error
Windows can not be started because there some change your hardware configuration.Please re-install 98.
Now why this happens i do not know ..please
Note i do not want to reinstall 98 cuz..
a) I love challenges..
b) I have no interest in wasting my time reinstalling all the other softwares
Hope u guys can help me......
