    Hey,

    I need a Windows Me boot Disk, because i dled one but it didn't go to the start menu... instead when straight to the command prompt. I need to be able to go to the start menu so i can run a minimum bootup. btw what is a minimum bootup, i mean how is it different?

    Hi Wasabi,

    You can find all kinds of bootdisks here: http://www.bootdisk.com/original.htm
    I´m quite in the dark about what you want to do with it though. Could you give us some more info?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I need to do a system restore.... in order to get to the restore tool I need to do a minimum boot up ..... Pieter are you sure that place will have a startup menu selection in the boot disk? Becuase i've dl from a site that had a boot disk that went straight to the command prompt.

    What is the difference between the custom and the OEM disk from the site you recommended?

    That´s actually why I asked wasabi.
    The recovery you want to do, is that the one provided by Windows Me or a total recovery as some computer manufacturers provide (e.g. IBM, HP) ?

    Regards,

    If you can still boot normally, there´s no need for the boot-disks.

    (1) Click Start
    (2) Click Programs
    (3) Accessories
    (4) System Tools
    (5) Click on System Restore

    You get a screen with the choice to make a new restore point or go back to a previous date. Choose the latter and pick the date you want to go back to. Click Next and let Windows do the work for you.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hey pieter and snowy,

    The computer stalls at the splash screen and goes no further. If i got into normal or safe mode it stall at the splash screen. I'm trying to do a restore from command prompt. Could it be a virus? I will try running f-prot for dos, and see what will happen.

    Hi Wasabi,

    I´m sorry it took me a while to figure out what you are trying to accomplish. I think you are trying to follow this: http://www.winbookcorp.com/_technote/WBTA10160108.htm
    Unfortunately the startup disk they are referring to is something different from a normal boot-disk, since it is created from a working Windows Me environment as described here: http://www.duxcw.com/digest/Howto/software/windows/winme/startup/page2.html
    If you did not make such a disk, you´re best shot at getting your system back to a working state would be this way:
    http://www.perfectdrivers.com/howto/scanreg.html
    This can be achieved from the boot-disk you already have.

    Good luck and keep us posted,

    Pieter
