if any one is able to help, it is greatly appreciated.

i formatted the c drive.

i tried to install windows 98 again but this message comes up-

"setup cannot install windows 98 on your cpu.
your cpu does not have a hard disk, your hard disk is not functioning correctly, or your hard disk requires a special device driver.
contact your cpu vendor for assistance."

hope all the caps on the earlier post weren't a problem.

it gave me a volume serial number after one of the times i tried to install.

when i type setup for the disks, hpfs and another similar code appear and says something about a partition.

please , if anyone can help me , you have my utmost gratitude.

take care

Hi isdiswhatuwant, welcome to TSG....

Did you boot with a windows 98 bootable floppy disk and do fdsik first to remove the prior partitions?

Also, how large is the hard drive and are you trying to install it in an older computer? It could possibly need an overlay program.

What brand hard drive is it?
