Hello,
How do I format my hard drive, and create a boot disk so that I can clean out my old hard drive and then reinstall Win98 plus my device drivers? I have a new MSI 845 Ultra -AR motherboard with Pentium 4 and I am in the process of completing my building of a new PC. I still am using my old 10.2 Gbyte Maxtor hard drive from my previous Gateway PC but I want to clean it out and then re-install Win98 plus my device drivers. Thanks for all of your help in advance.

For boot disk, go to Add/Remove Programs > Startup Disk. To format HD, boot using boot disk and use the command
Code:
format c:
.

Make sure you save all of your drivers and files you need on a CD or different partition before continuing.
