    Will some tell exactly what I need to remove Windows NTR from a machine and replace it with Windows 95 or 98.

    I tried the method in "How to Manually Remove Windows NT or Windows 2000 (Q103049)". By following the procedure in this article, I landed into more trouble.

    The system admin I asked is giving me a run around as in try this try that....

    So what do I need and what do I do with it.

    So far what I know is that I need a beet disk. What do I need on that boot disk (the name of the files an where do I get those files) ????

    When I boot my machine using that boot disk, what do I type aat the prompt, in order to wipe out Windows NT4.0 from my machine.



    I have just lent what I thought was good boot disk to a friend of mine. When she tried to use it, she got the following error:

    "Couldn't Find NTLDR"

    6.0 Error Messages

    6.1 Couldn't Find NTLDR
    This message is displayed if the file NTLDR is missing from the root of the C: drive. You can copy the file to C:\ from either the CD ROM or floppy disks.

    To copy NTLDR from the CD ROM, make the CD ROM your current drive and enter the command:

    copy \i386\ntldr C:\


    To copy NTLDR from floppy disk, insert Disk 2 in your disk drive and make that drive the current drive. Then enter the command:

    expand ntldr.$ c:\ntldr


    Whay dpes all that mean???

    Don't use the NT setup disks to boot the PC. Go to a Win98 PC and create a boot disk and also put format.com and fdisk.exe on it. Boot to that disk, change to the A: prompt and type fdisk and enter. Select delete partition....option 4 I believe, then select delete Non-DOS partition if it is an NTFS partition...confirm the deletion and esc to the A: prompt again. Reboot to the disk and change o the A: prompt and type in FDISK....select option one to create a partition....confirm the creation and reboot. Now you should be able to boot to the disk and either run format C: /s from the boot disk or use a Win98 setup disk to begin the installation. I don't have the link for a good boot disk with CD-ROM support, but there is plenty of info out there to tell you how....google will give you all the links you could want
