I used a 98 boot disk and performed fdisk and format of the C drive. (went great)
I then proceeded to load 98SE from the CD. Everything went great until we got to the installation of PnP devices. The system rebooted and then I received the message for me to put the windows 98 cd in the drive. I concluded that the computer could no longer detect the CD drive. When I tried to browse for it I couldn't - It was not listed and no longer visible through 'My Computer'.
I tried doing everything again and again - right back to the fdisk and formatting stage and I continue to get the same result. Could it have something to do with rolling back from ME to 98? I don't understand it because it loaded off of the CD..... how could it not find it after completeing the majority of the install?
I should mention that the CD drive isn't that old.
