To get into Bios, boot the computer and repeatedly hit the delete, F1, or F10 key
. Once you get to the bios screen, look for an entry where you can change the boot order... change this to boot from the floppy first. Save and exit the bios... but put the Win98 start disk into the floppy drive before you exit bios.
The computer will restart and boot from the floppy. Once the floppy boots, you will be sitting at the a: prompt
and confirm large disk support. In the fdisk screen delete any partitions you want. Then create any you want, and just follow the prompts to move you along.
You will be told to reboot to save partition information. Do so, and the computer will once again bring you to the a: prompt
Once there, type in format c: /s
to format the c: partition. Confirm yes to all prompts and the formatting will commence.
Once formatting is done, you will be returned to the a: prompt. Restart your computer, and again boot to the floppy. You will then be brought to the a: prompt... (take note of the CD drive letters as the computer boots.)
At the a: prompt, type in the CD drive letter, followed by a colon... ie, D:
... then hit enter. You will then be sent to the D: prompt.
Once there, type in Setup
and win98 will begin it's setup routine... just follow along with the prompts.
