Well that sucks! That's all the magic of holidays/Winter. Let me guess, you're still in the 20s as well? As far for downloading 7, I assume that's because you run dial-up?

*Update* I just got the BSOD... It Says:

Your multi-function device Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller) has some child devices using 32-bit drivers and others using compatibility-mode drivers. This configuration is not supported so your computer has been halted to prevent corruption.

After you restart your computer, Windows will use compatibility-mode drivers for each child device attached to this multi-function device. If you want to use 32-bit drivers, you may be able to obtain an updated driver for the device that caused the problem by contacting your hardware manufacturer, or you can disable the device

Press any Key to continue

So i press enter...

BAMM it is now safe to turn off your computer...

ROFL

How i missed the bsod.

*And now its lagging again*

This usually occurs if you have both PATA and SATA Hard Drives connected to your Motherboard.

Yes The Cd Is Bootable...

Im starting the pc with cdrom support

Both CD's Are windows 98... One is First Edition And theother IS Second Edition.

I have No E Drive... i dont understand why

... Well, unless you created the CD yourself, and made it bootable, it is not. It was when XP was new that the distribution became bootable.

Windows 98 does not support Hard Drives over 137GB unless you have a Patched driver.

Otherwise you may be corrupting your Hard Drive.

If you exceed 1GB of RAM you will need another Patch

I wanna try it out on a real computer environment.

So the error i get after i put BOTH disks into the drive is

Device driver not found: 'OEMCD001'

No Valid CDROM Device Drivers Selected.

The windows 98 Setup files were not found.

a:\> (the thing is i dont have An A drive...)

The only two drives avalable to me are a/c

Somone wanna help me out here?

*Cracked 98 Files Worked Fine On VPC*

rember you can only have 1gb ram in 98!!!!

there is a fix to an ini file on microsoft.com

just edit it with edit (after booting to command prompt

THIS GOES IN SYSTEM.INI:

- Start/Run/Sysedit

- Select System.ini window

- Search for existing VCACHE line

- Replace that with lines below

[vcache]

minfilecache=0

maxfilecache=524288

1) you expected Windows 98 to support NTFS partitions? (hence why only some drives were listed in Windows 98)

2) you expected it to run well without motherboard drivers? (as pointed out, motherboard manufacturers don't develop drivers for legacy operating systems.)

3) A:\ drive is not always reserved for floppy drives, it is used for both floppy and CD but floppy gets priority if a floppy drive is present.

1. my Win 98 cd supports NTFS

2.you should n't need a chipset driver but you can install it if u have it

3. my Win 98 CD can be booted by CD no floppy required
