I received a friends computer with no hard drive. After installing a new hardrive and booting the computer with the original Win98SE CD in the CD-Rom drive the computer was actually working, but not all that well. I decided to reformat the drive and followed instructions posted on different web sites. I had tried to create a startup disk without success so I downloaded a couple different WIN98SE startup disks from online. After reformatting, the computer does not recognize either the floppy startup disk or the CD-Rom. The message I get says, "Invalid system disk Replace the disk then press any key."
Any suggestions will be much appreciated, especially if they are in plain english because I don't really know what I am doing.
