I have recently had a problem with my windows 98 and so I have put a boot disk in and now it comes up with this message:
Table


Write behind all data will be committed before command data prompt returns.

For help type "smartdrv /?"

Try.
At the A> prompt.
Type.
sys a: c: [note spaces]
Then type.
fdisk /mbr
This should repair master boot record.
Remove disk>reboot.

Let us know if that helps.

Hi
I have had know progress with that it does not work, it says:
'To many parameters-fdisk' I have recently got a windows XP CD If wonder I could install this or whether I have to fix the boot disk problem first?

If anyone can tell me the answer to either of these questions please help.

We will need to know the processor speed.
For Xp the minimum needed is a processor speed of 700-800 Mhz.
Installed Ram 256 Mb ..512 Mb of Ram would be better.
