Win 98 installation

I have a problem with installing w98se on my notebook.
I can not use both my floppy and cd drive at the same time, additionally my cd drive is not Hot Swappable.

I have just formatted my hdd, (format c: /s)
But can not get it to boot from the hdd.
I have copied the w98 boot disc to hdd and still no luck.

Not sure about dos stuff.
Any help would be great

Are you able to boot from CD-Rom? In your Bios should be an option to select your first boot device (CD-Rom, Floppy, HDD, Network,…), select CD-Rom as first boot device, save & exit, insert your Win98 CD and after rebooting it should work…
