: i put a 18 gig in place of my 4gig. its a western digital. when i try to boot right before it goes into the loading screen of windows 98SE and right before it says Starting windows 98(for the first time) it just stops right there in dos with the underline typing line. i've hit spacebar and enter(did this on another computer and worked) it failed. the hd light stays on. Should i try to reformat and not use the EZinstall Harddrive disk?? the bios is A: to C: boot. i dont understand please help.

Is the Bios seeing all the drive, older Bios only read upto 8.4Gb. Update the Bios, get somebody to do this for you if you havent done this before.

I once had this prob when loading one of Windows.

Found a tip to copy Smartdrive from Win98 to a flopy then copy to c drive first then load Win98,this worked for me.

Hope this works for you.
