In your question, you didn't mention wether or not you are using a Windows 98 bootup disk to install Windows 98 I am also assuming that since you did reformat your hard drive, you currently have no operating system installed With these assumptions, I suggest you review the recommendations/instructions provided by Microsoft You can copy and paste the following address into your Internet browser window:;en-us;Q221829
