I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDS.
Windows 98 would not boot in normal mode, but it would in safe mode. In safe mode I could not access the cd drive, but when normal mode DID work the other day, I could.
When trying to boot in normal mode, I got a message saying there was not enough extended memory to boot.
I booted in command prompt and formatted the entire hard drive, erasing windows 98.
I have a windows 98 boot disc (ISO) which I burned to a CD-RW. Obviously, the computer isnt recognizing the disc.
I try to access drive D: by typing it, and it says invalid drive specification.
Also, fdisk, as well as various other commands, arent recognized as commands any more.
I may purhcase a swappable floppy drive to replace the CD rom drive, but I dont want to waste money if the drive is not the problem.
All I want to do with this antique laptop is play old windows and DOS games. :/
What can I do now?
