I have an old toshiba satellite pro 430cds.
I have successfully created a boot disk, using a windows 98 emulator on my windows 7 laptop.
I have a windows 98SE cd, which I burned myself.
I start the computer, and it gives me the option to boot with CD rom support, or not. I select boot with cd rom support, and it seems to go smoothly until one of the lines read: ERROR PCI READ CONFIGURATION FAILURE.
Then, it says something like "starting your computer" and brings me to the command prompt at A: .
I type D:. and then dir. However, SETUP.EXE is NOT visible, and neither is the win98 folder. But when I put the same CD in my computer, with win7, I can see SETUP.EXE and WIN98, as well as many other files not visible in command prompt on the older machine.
What step can I take now?
