Hello I am working to install my old Windows XP Upgrade edition on Oracle VirtualBox but am running into as issue when it asks me to put in my old Windows 98SE edition CD.  The Windows XP install does not see my 98 CD and I am stuck at this point.  I was wondering if there was anyway to get vituralbox to see that I have the disc in my computer or skip this step, I do have a product key for both versions of Windows.

See this post. Only use the first link. This is a full version of XP SP3 with no need for a Windows 98 CD.

In VirtualBox, make sure the VM can utilize the CD drive. In the storage section in VirtualBox, enable passthrough for the CD/DVD drive.
