When I boot my computer it starts out OK but stops with this massage (REPLACE INVALID SYSTEM DISK).
Tried to start using Win 98 startup disk it starts but stops with same massage.
Tried to start up using Win 98 set up disk, it boots to a screen that has two choices
1. Boot from Hard disk.
2. Boot from CD Rom

When I boot from CD Rom. Setup screen opens. Press enter to set win 98 it will run scandisk. Screen comes up says Fix file click on it and it dose that for 4 or 5 files,
Then it comes to a file it cant or want fix. If I click on Donít Fix it reboots back to

How can I reload windows 98SE or reformat?

Have you checked your boot order in the BIOS?
Set the boot order, Floppy, CD-Rom, HDD.

Your problem may be caused by a corrupt MBR (Master Boot Record).
You can download MaxBlast4 from here to your desktop then click on it and make a bootable floppy then you can write zeros to your drive and reset the MBR.
