Hi ohme, DAVEINCAPS, itguru, TopFarmer, pyrolitic, hi everyone
Look whom the cat brought in... yes, I have returned home once again. :-)
As mentioned by TopFarmer you, ohme, have to get your boot priority set straight. If your first boot devices is the Hard Disk Drive (HDD 0), you will not be able to boot from either the Windows 9x installation CD-ROM nor from any bootdisk.
To (re)create a valid, active, DOS partition as mentioned by DAVEINCAPS follow these steps.
Best Regards and Wishes,
