Hi!

 

I have an old hard drive that I want to install Win 98 on. Once I get to creating the temporary directory, it tells me that it might be a HPFS or NTFS hard drive. It tells me I need to create a MS-DOS boot partition to set up Windows. How do I create this? I am trying to use the FDISK command but it tells me that it is a bad command or file name. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Why do you even want to use Windows 98.

It's an old PC and would have trouble running something such as Windows XP. I did get the problem fixed and have Windows 98 installed. I now need to install the sound card and get the internet working. I plan on installing Remix OS.

I'd suggest posting in the W98 forums:  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/9/windows-9598me/

I've forgotten most of what I used to know about W98 (because I just haven't worked with it in so long).


My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
