Re: Windows 98 to XP install mishap
Thanks for the help.
I think the PC crashed hard. He installed windows 98 again and now it starts up in what looks like safe mode but can't get out of it. He made an undo disk but now the floppy drive decides to give an error on boot up without anything in it and will not read anymore. When we do get it running (safe mode) it runs and stalls on everything we do.
Its a gateway PC and the restore disk isn't the bootable type, you just run it and choose what you want to restore.
