    I want to format my new Satellite P10 with the Recovery CD but when it restarts it says that it will start Windows 98 so does this mean that when I reinstall to its default it will install windows 98? and not windows media center???

    bye

    I noticed the same exact thing with my Satellite P20. It ended up with XP Pro though, just as it should have been

    It says "Windows 98" because they base their BOOT CD on a Windows 98 image.

    Since you can't boot off a Windows XP diskette into a command prompt, it loads the 98 command prompt so you have support for FAT & FAT32 file systems.

    Once the image is reloaded onto the HDD (most likely using Ghost), the system restarts and viola, it's running XP again.

    You have nothing to worry about. I used to make Restore CD's the exact same way using Ghost.
