    Default Operating sytem reinstall problem

    i've got this problem with an old computer i have that runs windows 98, i've formatted the hard drive and when i try and reinstall windows 98 from cd or the hard drive it goes back to the dos prompt after it says the copying files part just after scandisk has run.

    Any ideas?

    did you perform a surface scan? does scandisk report any errors? installation can only start if scandisk finishes and finds no errors. what's the size of the hdd?

    there's no problems with the drive, i think i know what the problem is now. I think i'm trying to install with windows 98se upgrade files, so i'll try putting windows 95 on first and see what happens.
