I have read other Missing Operation System post and nothing helps.
I was given this pc - Dell Dimension 4100-733MHz -256 ram - 20Gb HD with Me os and the original Me cd.
I was told the HD was partitioned and during partition the winMe was completely deleted
and HD was never formated.
All i see in the partition dept is the C: that is "A" for Active.
when I start up the pc it says Missing Operation System.
I have a win98 floppy for boot up if needed or do i need a different boot-up floppy ect..?
btw i'm not pc savvy.
knowing that the win Me is no longer on the system..i have an original XP Home CD and original win98SE but rather install XP home.
how do i get the Missing Operation System to recognize anything?
the pc doesnt boot from the cd-rom when i put in the xp cd.
I tried different position orders with the...
C: Ide HD
and still nothing
F2-F8 all work...i can get into the system's bios,
i can also see or make/delete partitions.
but it always comes back to MISSING OPERATION SYSTEM when i restart the pc.
Any guide/steps to get my described problem resolved?
what am I missing?
