The Windows 2000 CDs published by Microsoft are bootable and do not offer any Windows 98 install.
As it stands it appears you need some proper media.
I recently received a dell notebook LatitudeD600. It was locked so i purchased a new hard drive. I now know i dont need to, but that's beside the point.
I need to get it working but it doesnt have any bootable devices available. Then i found some old boot cd, but it wants windows 98. I went down that route and it's a no-go.
I dont have the windows XP cd on hand , but i do have the Windows 2000, which i figured could be a start.
I've formated the drive over and over, created the partitions, but since the boot cd is old, it wont install anything other thean windows 98. And when i did put windows 98, it wont recognize the DVD/cd rom.
Can somebody please help me....?
