Did you actually format and load windows onto it ?. It sounds like it is partitioned but not formatted. This can cause similar error messages. Another thing I have come across is that large disks have problems if the system they are being installed on is old.....Pentium 1 era. etc.
Also what answer do you gat when you type dir when in C:\ drive. If tou get something like unknown media then it needs formating.

As Rob says, if you're drive says "Invalid media type reading drive C:" then you need to use F-Disk or you're E-Z Installer thing to partition, format, and install Windows98. Use a boot disk to extract your Windows files onto the C: drive after formatting it. (Extract in C:\Win98) when it is done, go into that directory and type "setup" and you're all set.
