    If you have a floppy in the drive, and it is not a boot disc, then when you reboot it will come up with that message, remove the floppy disc and re-boot.

    This message normally appears if you have a disc in the floppy drive, that is not a system disc. If you have a disc in the floppy drive then take it out ! Do you or don't you have a disc in the floppy drive ?

    Does the hard drive appear in the bios setup?

    http://freepctech.com/pc/002/files010.shtml

    Download a boot disk from there so we know what we are working with. DO NOT save to floppy, save to desktop, double click and follow instructions. Then boot the laptop with that and see if you can get to the a: prompt.

    Do you have the capability of having the floppy drive and cdrom connected at the same time or are we going to have to jump thru laptop hoops?

    Also, when you mentioned format c: above, exactly what happens?

    Also, you comment about copying the oak.sys file, if that is the command you used, it's wrong.

    Explain yourself a bit more clearly please.
