In an attempt to format C: for a clean installation of OS, I used Win98 boot
disks (2) to boot start into the A: prompt, where I supposed to format C:
/s. But, I was asked to 'insert a MS-DOS disk to A:....' that I do not know
what I should do. Then I moved around different drives, i.e D: (a partion of
HDD), E: and F: (two ROMs), but was never allowed to go back to A: again
when I typed A:, saying 'Inaccessible, Abort? Failed? Exit?'. Then, I had to
move E: or F: where I formatted the C: successfully. Any problem of the FDD?
If so, how it run the Win98 boot disks smoothly? Can anyone tell me what was
wrong. Thanks!
