I am trying to do a clean install with WIN98 SE on a P1 200 Mhz machine that has Win 95 installed and working and has an upgraded BIOS in Dec 2000. I am stuck at square one. Having problems with the boot disk. Specifically, I am getting the message:
Device driver not Found
No Valid CDRom device drivers selected
I am using both the boot disk that comes with WIN 98 and another one that I made, but no luck.
I tried loading the driver for my CD Rom in the Config.sys file:
with the corresponding entry in the Autoexec.bat file:
LH MSCDEX.EXE /D:mscd001 /L:e
I also tried the putting the Oakcdrom.sys driver in the config.sys file
I also downloaded the latest driver from the CD ROM manufacturer's website (Delta is the manufacturer). Did not matter.
I also downloaded the latest MSCDEX.EXE file. Did not matter.
I was also thinking it may be a defectice CD ROM but I just replaced it about a month ago and it appears to be working fine with Windows 95 running.
At the C prompt after the system has booted on the boot disk, both my C and D hard drives are accesable but obviously not the CD ROM.
So, I am stumped. Why are the drivers for the CD ROM not loading? Or is it some other problem?
Thanks in advance for any help.
