I just did a fresh install of Windows ME on a computer with a pentium(r) III processor and 127 ram. It is a Gateway computer that has three installation discs (Restoration Kit). 1: Hardware Drivers 2: ME OS 3: Application back-up. I have installed all three disks according to intruction after I did a fresh reformat. If I have disc 2 (ME OS) disc in, I can start windows. If I do not have the Gateway CD-Rom disc 2 (ME OS) in the computer, the boot up stops and says: "Invalid Boot Diskette Insert BOOT diskette in A:" Is there anyway I can get Windows ME to start wthout a boot diskette? It used to, but my whole system crashed. After this reinstall, it is needing a boot diskette... Thank you for any help. On a side note, I do have a DVD rom I istalled in place of the CD Rom, and I have not installed the software yet. I also have a card installed that lets me watch TV on my computer. I forget which brand (ATV I think) becuase I lost my disc.
