Sorry folks, I've found about 4 or 5 messages sitting on Yahoo for a few days that I did not catch. I am forwarding them now. Better late then never.

In the dos prompt type format d:\ /s Leave the spaces as they are. You may have to have the boot disk in the floppy and be in the A:> drive prompt. Once that's done, move the files you want onto it. Then do a clean install of the OS. From what I've heard, it's a total nightmare using the upgrading method. You should do a full new install of win98. Or totally reformat the c:\ drive, install win95 then immediately do the upgrade. Also check and make sure the d: drive is not an ntfs type. It should be at least FAT16. For 98, it should be FAT32. ----- Original Message ----- From: mdnghtkiss76 To: 24hrsupporthelpdesk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, April 29, 2002 8:50 AM Subject: [24hrsupporthelpdesk] Re: formating harddrive Hi john thank you. I went ahead and formated my cdrive but now I'm having trouble installing windows again. I'm upgrading my computer so I went from an IWILL with a 400 ghz processor to now a MSI with a AMD XP processor. I have a Win95 CD that I'm bringing up to an upgrade to Win98. When I installed win95 it tells me that "setup found a compressed volume or a disk-cashe utility on your computer, quit setup and remove... I think it said to remove the device. I went ahead and installed win95 but it wouldn't boot so I went ahead and installed win98 which gave me the same error, I was figuring it was talking about the d drive that is on there. I'm now getting the messages when I start my computer that there is no array and that windows isn't finding a ton of DLL's. Any idea on what is going on??? - Users can unsubscribe from this list by sending email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1/24hrsupport.htm.
