I have just recived a IBM 560 Notebook, I can't get this thing to boot up?
When I started it it was showing (invalid disk). I have since got it to boot from PCMCIA, the it asks for a floppy and tells me to press F1, then nothing happens, Do I need some kind of utility disk to set this thing up.
Any help will be welcome.

Sounds like the hard drive isn't formated and partitioned. Go here and get a Windows98 boot disk. bootdisk.com (http://www.bootdisk.com/)

You should be able to fdisk and format your hard drive with it. Then install your OS.


Good Luck http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif
