The utility of Windows 98 startup disk

Starting Windows 98 might prove to be enormously troublesome especially when you have a boot sector error on your hard disk. With Windows 98 being an outdated platform your task becomes even more challenging as you have far less tools to play with. Unlike cotemporary operating systems like the Windows Seven that include backup system drivers and built in recovery mechanisms to deal with OS errors instantly, Windows 98 is pretty tricky to get started, in case there is a boot sector error. The Windows startup disk is your only way out in case you want to reinstall your windows 98 or boot in safely. Besides the utility of windows 98 startup disk lies in the fact that, with your hard drive failing to boot conventionally, your start up disk is your only way out.

In case you have misplaced or lost your windows 98’ startup disk you will need to create an Emergency Boot Disk (EBD) to recover it back. The Emergency Boot Disk holds all the records of the startup disk therefore, by typing in the right DOS command you can safely reinstall all your Windows 98’  drivers and other utilities. However, you do need a floppy diskette that first needs to be formatted and then used with the right command prompt to initiate drive creation. Other than your  floppy diskette you also need to check up on your power as any power interruption in the middle of a startup disk creation could seriously endanger your already crippled Windows 98’operating system.

Generally, most users utilize the startup disk when their hard disk fails to boot or is seriously crippled by viral infection. A startup disk contains all of the vital system data’s that’s necessary to complete the boot sequence safely without incurring any trouble. Windows 98’ startup disk can be created with a simple procedure but it is necessary to have an interchangeable floppy drive or a CD-ROM drive. The startup disk needs to be created through MS-DOS therefore you will need to  restart your computer with the ‘CTRL’ key pressed until Windows 98 starts up. When the menu screen appears, select the command prompt from the Windows Startup menu. Pop in a formatted floppy disk into your ‘A’ drive. Type the subsequent command in the right order and press enter after every command prompt: “cd windows\command”, “smartdrv.exe”, “bootdisk a:” All you need to do next is follow the on screen instructions to create your Windows 98’ startup disk. However, don’t opt for the “Smartdrv.exe” option as it doesn’t create your startup disk instead speeds up the procedure of startup disk.

Windows 98 Startup Disk can also be created through a conventional manner from within the OS itself. Click on Windows Startup> Settings>Control Panel. Once here, double click on Add/Remove Programs>Startup Disk tab>Create Disk. Once you have clicked on clicked on “Create Disk”, insert a formatted floppy diskette into your drive “A” and then click on “OK” when prompted to build a Startup Disk. Finally write protect and Label your floppy diskette.

The next method for Startup Disk creation is quite simply and fairly easy to implement. Here, you will first need to place your Windows 98 CD-ROM within your CD-ROM drive and then have your floppy diskette available. Ideally it’s always best to have at least two formatted 1.44 MB floppy disks on hand just to make the procedure safe. To commence the process, click on Start> Programs> Windows Explorer, then click on ToolsMtsutilFat32ebd folder located within your Windows 98 CD-ROM. To conclude, double-click on the Fat32ebd.exe file and simply follow the instructions to the core to create your Startup Disk.

However, when creating a Windows startup disk there are certain aspects that must be always kept in mind no matter what. First and foremost being your power backup. Start up disk creation is quite a delicate procedure and any power spikes in the middle of a disk creation can seriously endanger your OS, you might even corrupt your DOS files meaning you won’t be able to create startup disk using DOS commands. Therefore always use a power back such as an UPS. Other than power fluctuations you must always be aware of the condition of your floppy diskette. You floppy must be cleanly formatted before being inserted for ‘startup disk creation’. Use the write-protect mode before inserting your floppy diskette as this wipes out the chances of virus being inflicted on to your floppy drive from your affected PC. In case you do have data’s on your floppy or your floppy drive is slightly corrupted, then the process won’t work. Users that have genuine bad sector within their hard disk might find it challenging to reinstall there Windows 98 using startup disk.

The utility of windows 98 startup disk is just enormous as it lets you safely log into to your Windows even when it’s badly infected or malfunctioning. However, when you are indeed making you own 98’ startup disk, always consider to keep your floppy disk formatted and to type in the right command prompt. If in any way you cannot recall the right DOS command then always call off ‘startup disk creation’ as you could possibly inflict more damage on to your already injured Windows 98 operating system. However, to know the exact procedures by heart you could look out for online tech tips that give away precise command prompts. You can also take aid of startup disk utilities that can precisely do the same job except that these are “.exe programs” that are designed to do all the operations all by themselves. All you need to do is log in to your Windows as the administrator and execute the program with all other running services and programs disabled.

Although Windows 98 has become outdated, but users who still want to keep their backdated PC’s in order, need to follow the exact startup disk procedures to kill off their PC problems. By knowing how to create a startup disk, you can easily nullify any PC problem on your Windows 98 with ease.
