Format and load


Senior member
This is a question for Chartman or any other computer boffs, as my knowledge of such things is limited. (Only just put the abacus away in the cupboard)

If the hard drive was re formatted and a win '98, 2ooo or xp was put in the cd rom drive. Would it load the os properly or would you end up having to delve into the depths of the dos side of things? (which I hate doing)

Ta in advance.

No, that should work ok, so long as the BIOS is set to boot from CDROM first....... some motherboards won't boot from CDROM if it is second in the list ( BIOS Bug.)
