'[OT] Any one who still have DOS 6 & above please h'

Hi all!

I'm using win98 SE OEM FULL VERSION. I've refomatted my harddisks. Running
setup again with the startup disk does nothing but giving the annoying error
message, which says cannot continue due the operating system is already
installed. Forward the problem to local MS dist., they only sent me the
setup.txt, which already comes with the setup CD and I have read and tried a
few times but still getting the error message (SU0168).

The only way I can think of now is get help from you guys by sending me the
old DOS6 or higher and run setup from there.

Even just the boot files plus  :-
   - format.com
   - sys.com
   - himem.sys
   - emm386.exe

will do.

Just in case you're wondering how did I get this message accrossed, I'm
using my Power Slim 600 notebook. Thanks in advanced to whoever it'll be or
otherwise my PIC works will get stuck here because of the stupid OS.

thanks.

Ahh...I remembe the days of the dreaded "SU0168" error message. Ok, what you
want to do is rename win.com to win.old. You will also want to rename
version.exe to  version.old. Once these files are renamed, there shouldn't be
an OS check.


Hope this helps,

Sorry, it's not version.exe, it's winver.exe.

Sam,

Take a look at:

http://www.bootdisk.com

which Mark posted. It looks like it would have exactly what you need. If
not, I have the files you want,but I don't have any software to create a
floppy image,so you would have to format the disk as bootable or use a disk
image from the web site given above.

Why not use fdisk.  Remove ALL drives, and then recreate them.  This will
erase the disks fat tables and start afresh, leaving you with a virginal
disk. You will then be able to boot direct from the cd

hope this helps

Yes I did just that. Again remember even the fdisk was also included in the
startup disk, which means even after i 'sys' it, the 'ver' is still the very
same win98 se...CD setup again says 'the stupid things'...

Sorry for the OT.

I've had to bite the bullet and finally buy a new 450MHz banger which
gets delivered on Friday.

Before it's too late, it seems WIN98 is a flop which is phasing out. Is
WIN 2000 the go?

Use http://www.bootdisk.com  to get all 'normal' bootdisk images. Including the proper
MBR and fdisk and friends.

Now I 've got my system back on the road again - a million thanks to Sean
Breheny for  giving me a link to a very useful site (at time of emergency) -
http://www.bootdisk.com . The file was boot622.exe.

Win98SE is not all that bad except for a few jerks at MS who program certain
functions/modules that as a whole reflects BG is making hell lots of moneys
out of badly designed OS. Funny why we should stick with it!

thanks again Sean.

You dont sys the hard drive from your floppy.  When you fdisk the drive,
simply reformat it and then boot from the cd.  You dont need to use the sys
command !! If you need to boot from the floppy use the win98 boot floppy and
select "run start from cd" when it has booted up.

How is Win98 SE not that bad? I have 128 MB RAM, and my machine acts as if it on
ly has about 12. I
can run a VB program of mine on my school's 16 MB Win98 machines, but can't on m
ine.

Sam,
Glad to hear that you managed to get your problem solved.
There is another way you could have solved the problem.
>From the setup disk run FDISK. DELETE all partitions.
Reboot. Now when the setup files run they will find a pristine
system and will be happy to partition and format the disk
for you automatically. Where you went wrong initially was
when you manually re-partitioned. Instead, let setup find
the disk unpartitioned, and then IT will take over and
partition and format and you won't get any more stupid
error messages.

Fr. Tom McGahee
