The message I get is in two lines, the first of which is "Invalid Boot diskette," and directly below, a second line that reads, "Insert BOOT diskette in A:"
What's got me completely buffaloed is the fact that I've switched hard drives (the original had Windows XP, Media, the second, switched HD had Windows 98) but the same message keeps coming up. I've checked the bios and changed the boot sequence so that the cd-drive was the first in line to boot, with Windows 98 cd in the CD drive. When that didn't work, I changed the boot sequence so that the floppy drive was first and used a Windows 98 startup disk in the floppy drive but that didn't get me anywhere, even though I managed to get to the CD on its drive and trigger setup.
Hope this makes some sense to you guys and results in a doable course of \action for me.
BTW, I downloaded the paramedic fromthis site and it didn't solve anything. Is it possible that there's a gremlin loose on my motherboard?
Thanks in advance,
