I used a win98 boot disk on a winme machine. I used SYS C: after I deleted win 2000 on my dual boot set up. now I can't start winme. The error says this version of windows only runs on MS-Dos 8.00.
I need the data that is on the hard drive so I can't just do a clean install. Any help would be great.
To boot from the ME CD you have to change the CMOS setting to boot from the CD ROM drive as the 1st boot device or it will not boot from it. Most computers allow you to enter the CMOS by holding down the delete key on startup some of the older ones require holding down F2. In the CMOS only change the boot sequence and get back out of it. Restart the computer with the ME CD in the CD ROM drive and watch as it comes up when it gets to the option screen select option #2 thats a restore option, option #1 will format the hardrive, you only have about 30 seconds to make this choice between #1 and #2 because its an automatic install so don't leave the machine during this process.
