i had a anti cmos virus
i took out the cmos battery and tried checking
if hard disk is ok in some other computer
hard disk was not readable
I bought another hard disk and put it in
and then in cmos settings, ENABLED anti virus protection
when I boot from floppy and type c: it says invalid drive specification
when I try to install win98 directly from CDROM it says MASTER BOOT WRITE VIRUS !! CONTINUE
IS THIS DUE TO ENABLING VIRUS PROTECTION IN CMOS SETTINGS? EVEN WHEN BOOTING DIRECTLY FROM CD ROM I GET THIS
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE REPLIES
