( My son wants 98SE installed on this machine for some games he found.)
I've got an HP Omnibook 7100 that I'm trying to install WIN 98SE on (from a multi-licensed copy cd). I formatted the HDD. When I start it up with a 98SE boot disk in the cd drive, I get the BIOS info screen with a small red screen on top of it saying :
"Save to Disk partition not found
Save to Disk feature is disabled
Run Phdisk for information. FILE: create new.
PARTITION: consult manual.
Hit any key to exit."
No key I hit does anything, except F1 or F2, F2 takes me to the Setup (yes, it is set to boot from the cd drive first).
F1 takes me to Boot Menu. I hit Enter to accept the already chosen cd drive, & it goes to a blank screen with :
"Invalid system disk
Replace the disk, and then press any key"
Please, no matter how embarrassed I'll be, tell me what I've forgotten to do. It's been years since I've tried anything like this.
