    Where is this file located in W98SE (Ver. 4.10.2222A) :confused:
    Have already looked for it with "Find" (B*.* , Boo*.* , Boot*.txt) with no luck-- tried *.txt which found 226 files, but NO Bootlog.txt, though :(

    It would be in the root directory (c:\) if its there. If it's been deleted you have to do a new logged boot. Something you need to do anyway if you want it to be current -- otherwise it would just be from the last logged boot or the original installation.

    To do a logged boot, press and hold the ctrl key immediately when the computer starts to boot. Select "logged boot" from the Boot Menu when it appears.

    Ok on Bootlog info.

    Comp uses a cd which is supposed to, I gather, reload all operating drivers/files for W98SE, but ALL programs have to be reloaded from the original cd's or re-downloaded from wherever u got a particular program.
    Could this be why Bootlog.txt isn't on this computer :confused:

    It may be why there is no original one if a "full restore" cd was used (I don't really know). But if you want to create one now, a "logged boot" should do it.
