Okay, this is *WEIRD*.... I gave my ME cd to a friend who needed it and got another copy. Ok, heres the strange thing...
I formatted a Notebook HD and set it up with the Win9X dir and GCTP drivers. I tried doin a FORMAT C: /s and I got the message:
"Microsoft Windows no longer supports the FORMAT /s command. Use Windows SETUP (Distribution CD) to make drive c: bootable".
What? so I try doin a SYS C:
"Cannot find the system files in the standard locations on drive c:. SYS can only be used on drive c: to attempt repair of an already existing installation of Windows. Use Windows SETUP (Distribution CD) to make drive c: bootable".
WTF? So I tried using the setup /nostart command at C: and It said copying setup files, and gave me another C: prompt.
I figured ok. So now Im golden. So I put my HD in the GCT, and I get the message, "Invalid system disk. Replace the disk and hit any key to continue". What the hell am I doing wrong? It worked fine with a previous version of ME. Could this have something to do with my bootdisk??
