I think I messed up and hope there's a path to recovery that doesn't require reinstalling Windows 98 AGAIN.
I was trying to get Microprose's M1 Tank Platoon to run in '98, which involved telling the shortcut to launch into DOS mode.
When I click on the shortcut it naturally asks if I want to boot into the special DOS environment I selected. So the system reboots, but after it loads the mouse driver, the system just stops. Blinking cursor but no C:\> prompt. Nothing gets me out of this.
Rebooting simply has it happen again. Clearly the condition that 'DOS has been launched' hasn't been satisfied so it doesn't let me reboot into Windows 98.
Anything I can do to salvage this or must I wipe the drive?
