My Windows 98SE system sometimes doesn't boot up properly and hangs on the screen message "Disk boot failure..." I am able to make it boot properly by inserting my emergency start up floppy and on the A: \> prompt typing FDISK /MBR. then all is OK for a few days then the problem comes back.
Would it help to also type SYS C: at the prompt?
One tip I read said to type "C:" first, then the above two commands. What effect would this have?
Why does typing FDISK /MBR on the A: \> prompt with the emergency S/U disk in fix the proplem, albeit temporarily?
What else should I be doing? Would prefer nothing too drastic if possible, as it seems to me the problem can't be too bad since it can correect and reboot properly for a while.
Any help would be most welcome!
