I'm running Windows98 - sort of.
A lot of little problems are occuring on my computer. It won't acknowledge any devices - 'a' drive, printer, scanner, etc. It won't allow me to delete files, downloaded programs, or shortcuts on the desktop, etc.
I was told that it is probably too messed up to fix, and I should reformat and reinstall my OS. I moved all my files off, and would be happy to blow the rest away.
I don't have the original disks anymore, so I went to www.BootDisk.com and downloaded Windows 98 SE OEM (I don't know what OEM means, but the only other choice was W98 SE Custom, no ramdrive)
Then, since my computer won't admit it has an 'a' drive, I burned the files onto a cd. But I can't boot from the cd, right? Do I have to have the OS on a floppy? I can get a friend to move the files from the cd to the floppy, if that would help.
I just don't know what to do next.
