    Default WIN 98 Boot Sequence

    I have reformated Win98 SE and now it stalls at the screen asking - press F1 to continue, DEL to enter setup - .
    How can I make it boot straight through?

    thanks for any advice

    Is there any error message on the screen?
    Usually when you get the option of Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter setup it's because of an error like keyboard not detected or CMOS battery flat.

    If its asking that, its something to do with your computers BIOS.

    Check and see if there's anything else showing there, such as 'Keyboard Error'

    You can Hit Del to Enter setup and stop the warnings, but its best not to ignore them, so post back with what it says :-)

    It might be that it wanted the BIOS setup saved. When you passworded the BIOS, you had to save it.
