If your windows 98 (or me or 95) fails to boot

Using an old operating system is not always bad, and sometimes its much easier to get it fixed . So if your windows 98–95-me wont boot (because of a software damage like virus , deleting files , corrupted files and so on) try to follow this recipe:

1-Boot from win98 (or 95 or me ) CD (maybe you need to change boot priority in bios) and choose “Start windows with CD-Rom support”
2- Change drive to C: and change directory to C:\windows
3- Rename to something else like : C:\WINDOWS> Ren win.old
4- Change drive to D: (your Cd-rom drive name) and change directory to D:|\Win98
(or D:\Win95 for Win95 or D:\win9x for WinMe)
5-Run Setup.exe
6- If your hard disk is not damaged , it will check the partitions and offers you a new folder to install Windows (like: windows.000) , change “Windows.000” to “Windows” and click on “next”
(if you don’t change it to “Windows” you wont lose your data but you will lose your applications and drivers.
7-Follow Setup program to the end .
Your windows is ready ! try to remove extra applications and install a good anti virus.
