Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
An emachine's or any manufacturer's restore disk isn't enough to install Windows from scratch, especially on another manufacturer's machine.
I have an emachines restore XP disk. How can I put XP on my old computer which runs 98se?
Well, you probably can't. Not with that anyway. A restore disk is just that; a disk to restore the operating system onto a specific machine - it's not a setup disk. There may also be legal issues involved; it's not intended as a way to make a copy of the operating system.
