how to boot to a:\ prompt with win 2k

Recommended Posts

I just used a DOS boot floppy on one disk, and the BIOS flash util with image on another because they all wouldn't fit together. Never used the harddrive at any time.

I don't recommend this. But I've been doing this for years and I still don't have any problems. What I do is boot off the Windows 98SE bootdisk and flash the bios on the Hard Drive smile It never failed so far smile

MarksmanX you are right!


That the way I have been doing. Boot of Windows 98 CD and flash the bios of the Hard Drive.


Good Job!
