I have an old computer that I'm trying to reformat with Win98SE. I know it's really outdated, but it would serve a huge purpose for me. Anyway, I through in the bootdisk, formated drive C:, and then ran the setup the from Win98SE CD. The OS seems to install, but when it gets to the point where it wants to restart, Windows doesn't boot up. I've tried several formats and WinME, but the same thing happens every time. I noticed though that if I go to the C:/ drive and type in "dir," I see a list of folders and a few files. Obviously, things are being written to the drive. However, I can't seem to open any of these files. So, can someone tell me how to get around this? I would be very grateful if someone can help me get this computer back up.
PS. I own both of these operating systems LEGALLY. I know for a fact that the discs work.
