This is a follow-up to my original thread about W98 not recognising my second partition. Now it recognises it fine, it just won't install on it >:|
I have DOS 6.22 installed on partition 1, and I want to install Windows 98 on a separate partition.
I used Linux to create a second primary DOS partition, and then formatted it to FAT32 using the W98 startup disk. Then I marked it active using fdisk. So at this point the partition table looks like this:
Number Letter Label Type Format Size Active Notes 1 D MSDOS622 PRI DOS FAT16 2048MB NO This is the one DOS6.22/W3.1 is installed on 2 C WINDOWS98 PRI DOS FAT32 4096MB YES This is the one I want to install Windows 98 on
I try running setup.exe, and everything runs smoothly until it spits this at me:
Your computer already has an operating system installed, which cannot be upgraded by this version of Setup. Please obtain the Windows 98 Upgrade.
I don't understand. Why won't it install on the C: drive just because there's an OS on the D: drive? Any suggestions for how I can get to install?!
