webgyrl Posted December 3, 2007 Share Posted December 3, 2007 (edited) Hi all, Not sure if this is a hardware or software issue. Some time ago I got a new system... it's great! I want to give away my old system to my boyfriends Mom and I have wiped the drives on that system using Paragon Disc Wiper. Today I am trying to re-install and OEM Windows 98SE and upgrade it to XP. I put the boot disc in that I got with the Gateway package (it's an old Gateway) and I ran it OK and then it told me to take out the disc and make sure there was nothing in the CD Rom before it proceeded to re-boot. Well it rebooted and gave some funny blank screen and couldn't do any more. It was looking for some Command Line or somesuch thing. So I powered down and put back in the Boot disc and tried to go from step one, thinkig that I must have done something wrong. Well now each time I put the boot disc in and it goes through the attempt at re-format I get this error message: Not Ready Runtime error 152 at 0000:65f6 A:\>y Bad Command or Filename A:\> So I'm stuck. I looked up this error on Google and couldn't find anything. Any idea how I can re-format the drive and get the OS working? Thanks so much!
