Last updated: 3/9/04

Q.  How do I restore an old 133 MHz Pentium Packard Bell Multimedia D141 (Y130637426+) computer without the floppy?

A.  DOS fdisk and format the drive for FAT16.  Use a Win 98/95 Startup floppy  (http://duxcw.com/digest/Fromshop/software/windows/startup/startup.htm) or bootable DOS floppy with the CD-ROM drivers (see CD-ROM FAQs), etc., boot, and...

A:\>D:

A:\>DOSMENU

A:\>DOSRUN

Choose menu item 2 and item 1 on the resulting menu.

It doesn't ask for a format #.  You'll need the Windows 95 OEM product key.
