Installing windows on acer notebook help

\015 I wonder how to install \302\240windows 98 on the lod acer notebook. ive baught the new 120gb hard disk for it since the old one was crash. when i connect the hard disk, the notebook wont boot from cd because it says boot disk failed. i cant chage the bios setting because the cmos battery were dead and i dont know how to replace it. when i disconnect the hard disk, it can boot the win98 setup cd, but sadly without hard disk detected. ive also buyed 2.5 hard drive enclosure to access the hard disk through my desktop pc. the new hard disk work fine, i can store file in it. but how to install win98 in it throught usb drive enclosure, so after installing, i will able to re attch the drive to the notebook.\015

Answers :

The problem most likely - the laptop is old and the BIOS most likely cannot support a hard disk with a capacity of 120Gb.
\015\012Check the capacity of the old hard disk, most likely it is about 10 to 20Gb in size and you cannot buy one these days with these capacity.
You cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.
\015\012
\015\012to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.
