    i just reformated my computer by restarting in ms-dos mode and typing format c:, and it went through the stuff and i restarted it after it was done and when my computer loaded so i could install windows 98 this screen came up "INVALID SYSTEM DISK REPLACE THE DISK, AND THEN PRESS ANY KEY" i used a floopy win 98 se oem bootdisk. the boot disk worked and it asked if i wanted to start the computer with cd rom support or no cd rom support, i clicked on with cd rom support and it started going. then it said that it is aborting the installation because a cd rom drive was not found. does anybody know what to do? please help

    Go to www.bootdisk.com and download a boot disk for Win98SE. This will have a "CD-ROM support" option, just as you had before. It's possible the driver that your CDROM requires was corrupt on the disk you have.
