I'm trying to install Windows 98SE on a legacy gaming PC. This is a 400 MHz PII Gateway that was working fine; it had a bunch of old junk on it so I formatted C: and planned to start over. However, despite configuring the BIOS to start with the CD-ROM as the first boot device and having what I think is a bootable Windows 98SE image (and I tried several), I keep getting the message "Invalid System Disk, replace the disk, and then press any key". I dont have the materials around to easily create a boot floppy anymore and they're actually kind of expensive online so I'd like to try to do it with CD only, but I'm hitting a wall here. Any ideas?
