Windows 98 reinstallation

I am trying to reinstall Windows 98 SE on my Tiny PC but am having problems. I have formatted the C: drive but when I reboot from the Start up disk I get the message: Windows has detected that drive C does not contain a valid FAT or FAT32 partition. There are several possible causes for this - the drive may need to be partitioned therefore run FDISK, you may be using 3rd party disk partitioning software, some viruses cause your C drive not to register. It then says that the diagnostic tools were successfully loaded to drive C. When trying to run setup from the Windows CD I get the message that it cannot create a temporary directory. If you have HPFS or NTFS software installed on your hard drive you will need to create an MS-Dos Partition to set up Windows. HELP - what does all this mean? I have done reinstallations before but never come across this.

You need to fdisk and partition your hard disk first then format and then install Win98SE. To do that you need a bootdisk not the Tiny Start up disk. You can get bootdisk for any system you want to install from click here
