    can't seem to get a reinstall up and running....kindly tell me what's wrong with the following bat and sys files
    AUTOEXEC.BAT
    @echo off
    prompt $p$g
    path c:\win95;c:\win95\command;c:\
    set blaster=a220 i5 d1 h5 p330 e620 t6
    set path= d:\antivi~1\protect;%path%
    loadhigh=c:\win95\system\mouse.exe
    loadhigh=c:\sbcd\drv\mscdex.exe /d:mscd001
    CONFIG.SYS
    device=c:\win95\himem.sys
    dos=high
    dos=umb
    device=c:\win95\emm386.exe noems i=b000-b7ff d=64
    files=50
    devicehigh=c:\win95\setver.exe
    devicehigh=c:\win95\command\ansi.sys
    device=c:\sbcd\drv\sbide.sys /d:mscd001 /p:1e8,11 /v /p 170,15

    when i try this from boot up, it does not boot but asks for the system disk ( i.e. the boot disk )........it's probably something right in fron t of my noise.....please advise.....thanks

    You might try booting with a Win98 floppy, then enter "sys c:" (no quotes).

    Also, that is quite a lot of real mode drivers being loaded in the autoexec.bat and config.sys files.
    Try removing them one at a time to make sure everything works after Windows is installed.
