Hi there,

After formatting my HDD I wanted to load my new O/S (I have done this many times before). I put in my start up disk/boot disk and I get the message invaid system disk.....No matter what I do, whether the boot disk is in the floppy drive or not, I still get the same message. Occasionally I get 'updating ESCD, success', but after that its just 'Invalid system disk blah blah' Help me if you can.

Thanks in expectant anticipation

Make sure BIOS is set to boot from device the disk is in first I.E. Floppy, CDROM, Hard disk.
If that is set properly check your Floppy disk if that is what you are using, It could be bad.
