I'm really stuck with this one. My brother's computer is a Pentium 233, 32 Mb Ram, 2 Gig Hdd and Win95 (I'm not sure which version) I've just finishing formatting his hard drive because of all his crap on his computer. The problem is I can't boot from a Win95A or B boot disk or a Win98 boot disk. I must tell you first that I installed a NIC first before I formatted. I've done this a couple of times with my Win98SE computer and have had no problems.
I'm totally confused on this one. Can anyone please help me with this one?
Check the BIOS setup to make sure the the boot sequence is set for A: drive first, then C: drive. Also, make sure your boot diskettes work (on another PC). If the diskettes work on another PC, and the A: drive light comes on but the PC won't boot from the floppy, and the boot sequence is set correctly, you may have a floppy drive problem.
If you are getting an 'Invalid System Disk' error, then either the floppy drive is not being used for the boot process, or the diskettes are not being read correctly. If the diskettes are OK and the drive works on another PC, then the system is not set to boot from the floppy drive. Try disconnecting all drives except the floppy drive and see what happens.
