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???

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

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
