Sorry for the late reply! I believe the first bootable partition is offset from where the bios partition is placed, which is why using a standard DOS diskette to create partitions is confusing your Compaq. Thanks for all your help! Well then if that’s true then I retract my statement. I 2nd, 3rd, 4th? Discussion about old PC hardware.

I have traveled across the universe and through the years to find Her. Unfortunately my knowledge on memory mapping is awful, so any help is really sos

You could give that a whirl. Otherwise, you can still at least format the C drive and make it bootable. Tue May 10, 1: I had assumed that you were going to make a clean installation.

Tue May 10, 6: Sun May 15, Tue May 10, 5: You need neither a partition nor a floppy disk to access the BIOS as it is stored in a flash chip on the motherboard But unfortunately it seems to have adapted into a whole new issue ods.
Unfortunately without a working floppy drive this only makes it twice as difficult to complete. Last edited by Zuon on What about using Rufus? Compaq still has the drivers for this machine on their website, it’s under “Software – System Management”. SYS is using ‘CE00’ as shown on the driver link above.
The short of the problem is that it can’t detect the card that’s inserted into it even though it worked fine on Windows 98 when using the pre-installed image I had bringing up the following error on startup: I would suggest modifying the contents of the image in-situ using WinImage, doss even by mounting it in Dosbox and modifying the files on it through Dosbox.

The setup routine autoconfigures everything, so if a compatible driver is there you shouldn’t need to tweak a thing.
Why not try and install Windows first and then worry about the drivers? Page 1 of 1. After 98 SE Setup completed, it was just a matter of going driver hunting – but the single USB port worked out of the box, so that made it a lot easier.
The partition table is stored on the harddisk and your PC created a different incompatible one than your laptop expects Terrum wrote: You cannot post new topics in this forum You cannot reply to topics in this forum You cannot edit your posts in this forum You cannot delete your posts in this forum. Remove hard drive, connect it to another pc, format and partition it, set boot partition, copy an MS-DOS boot floppy contents to it, copy Win98 CD contents to another partition.
Make sure you set the translation or “large disk access” parameter in your BIOS correctly i. I stuck an image on a hard-drive with Windows 98 pre-installed onto it and it all seemed to work great saving me lots of time in the long run – until finally figuring out lots of linkages stopped working and lots of things were erroring out driver conflict, memory issues, etc.
Thanks a lot for your reply Darkster! Tue May 10, I have a couple of LTE Elites and both have dead diskette drives: The only thing I can suggest is that you download and create the Setup diskette for your model and try to use it on a third party machine to create the boot partition.
