    Partitioning, Formatting and Reinstalling in Windows 98 - After performing your...

    (Page 3 of 5 )

    After performing your backups it's time to get down to formatting and partitioning (if you want to do that as well) your hard drive.

    First you need to decide on a few things:

    * Do you wish to partition you hard drive or change the way it is partitioned currently?
    * The file system you want to use. Windows 98 support two file systems FAT 16 and FAT 32.

    To format your PC and reinstall windows 98 you need to do the following:

    1. Make sure that you have the start up disk that came along with your operating system CD. You can also make a start up disk by going to the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs Create Start up Disk, click on the button and insert a floppy in your floppy drive.
    2. Eject the floppy disk after the start up disk has been created.
    3. Turn off your computer.
    4. Insert the start up disk in your floppy drive.
    5. Restart your computer.
    6. Instead of booting from the hard disk, your computer will now boot from the floppy and a menu will appear.
    7. From the menu select "Start without CD-ROM support."
    8. After the files are loaded and you are returned to the prompt "A:/" type FDISK
    9. The FDISK tool is loaded and allows you to delete the existing DOS partition.
    10. Choose the file system you want to use.
    11. Delete the existing DOS partition by following the prompts on screen. (Option 3))
    12. After you have deleted the partition press the 'Esc' key to return to the main menu.
