    i have now even bought and installed the full version of acronis operating system selector .. ........but still no use the operating system selector is not able to detect the windows 98 .

    as from your advice sir :do i have to again reinstall windows 98 and windows xp on c and d drive respectively ? or Is their any other solution to my problem other than reinstallation of dual operating system.?

    Hello younus, let me see if I understand your setup correctly....

    1) Do you have 2 physical disk drives in your system, or do you have just 1 disk with 2 partitions?

    2) You say you lost some data during the formatting and installation of Windows 98. Is that correct?

    3) Where where the data located? 1st drive? 2nd drive?

    4) Are the data important to you, and do you need to recover the data?

    If you plan to recover the data please be aware that every second that you use the system, the greater the risk is that any data still left on the disk(s) are destroyed. If you can, I advice you to shut down the system, and use another computer until we know more about your setup.
