A couple of months ago, I got quite the nasty virus that prevented me from doing basically anything (I have a thread up on this forum about that if you want to see it). I attempted to reformat my computer after many weeks of agonizing work and reinstall Windows XP. However, I got the well-known explanation that Setup could not find the EULA (End User License Agreement). My friend lent me his copy of Vista and I successfully reformatted and installed it onto my hard drive.

Vista, however, was very unappealing to me and I wanted XP back, so I burned a Windows 98 iso and formatted absolutely everything from my computer in hopes that I wouldn't get that message again in the XP install (and because various sources said this was the fix). Unfortunately, I got the error again. Does this mean it can't find this on the disc?

So basically, now I am without an operating system and am typing to you via WiiNet (thank goodness for the USB keyboard support).

Any suggestions?

I forgot to mention that I have referred to that already. That's where I got the idea to use a Windows 98 disc.
