I had to fdisk the HD on my Acer 2100 Aspire. Now I am to able to load the pc up. I have the original setup disk that came with it but they only want to do a reload of the original hard drive and states it cannot find it. At this point I am unabel to load WIN98 anyway I try with OSR2 boot disk or any other method. I don't know where to go from here. I also have a copy of WIN98, but it will not load either. I think it has something to do with USB keyboard and mouse. Don't know where to go from here. Thanks.

Did you format the hard drive after Fdisk? Setup will sometimes not format it for you so you have to do it yourself.

Yes and I have the setup disk that came with it.
I'm sorry I forgot to mention that I had.
This Acer business is bad stuff, I never had a problem loading a pc as I have had with this one.
Where do I go from here. WHen I stick the disk in, I get to the diagnosis screen with the pink cross and the diagnosis screen. But I can not reload the hard drive.

Can you load the cdrom driver on dos boot to get access to cdrom? If you can than make a directory in dos on the hard drive and call it win98cabs or something like that then change back to the cdrom and type in a the D: prompt (cd\win98) *without the qoutes and press enter. copy the contents of D:\Win98 directly to the c:\win98cabs directory with the dos command copy *.* c:\win98cabs. It should look something like this D:\>win98 copy *.* c:\win98cabs than press enter.
After the files copy run setup from dos within C:\>win98cabs
