Using Partition Magic 7.0 I'm trying to install Windows 98 onto a second primary partion. I've created the new partition using the wizard but am having no luck getting the OS onto it.

Basically I do not have an OS installation diskette (floppy?), cannot get access to the BIOS (like on my old machine) to make the CDROM bootable OR despite using PQboot get the new partition to boot using the DOS and Drivers I have loaded onto it.

This situation sucks as I have successfull installed OS onto older machines by formatting from floppy and loading dos + drivers onto the drive and then installing the OS from the CDROM.

Can anyone help???


:confused:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
