    Arrow Microsoft's Windows 98 SE - CD Install on Blank Hard Drive

    What you will require to do this walkthrough is

    1.

    A Windows 98 CD
    2.

    A Computer with CD-ROM access

    To start this Windows install. First check that the first boot device in your system BIOS is set to the CD-ROM Drive.

    ( To find out how to access the BIOS please refer to your motherboard manual or the manufacturer of your computer. (The system bios can usually be entered on boot, usually by pressing the F1, F2, F8, F10 or DEL key. Make sure you save the settings before exiting))

    If you are unsure or don't want to enter the BIOS then just test the computer by putting the CD-ROM in the drive and rebooting the computer. This is the recommended way to install windows.

    You will know that your computer will/has booted of CD-ROM when the following screen appears.

    The link above walks you through the process of installing windows 98 from scratch. I recently helped my brother install this over the telephone and found the guide extremely helpful. Some of you might find it useful as well.

    I had to help my Mom out after a virus ran amuck on a 98 machine. Amazing how much you forget...

    At work they were running a Win 95 network,and last year they finally went to Win XP.Quite a jump from 95 to XPSP2 missing 98,98se and ME(no loss).
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
