You probably don't want to hear this but I really do not recommend that you do this.
The reason has to do with your hardware.

System Requirements for Windows 98:
486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium CPU recommended)
16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires up to 255MB of hard drive space
VGA Graphics

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
Super VGA Graphics

To be honest the posted minimum requirements for XP have long been considered a joke. A system twice as powerful as they recommend will probably still run slower than your current system with 98.
I am of course assuming that Windows 98 was originally installed on your system and it has circa 1998 hardware.

Hello. i have question about soundcard e-mu 1616 (not 1616M) please answer me pls. she work with windows 7? on official site i not see driver for Win7. but on 1616M driver is exists thx


Apparently versions of the E-Mu 1616 sound hardware are still being sold, and this is now 2013. My experience suggests that E-Mu is out of business. Creative Technologies has kept the E-Mu site online, but the forms are broken, nothing's been updated for years, the forum is virtually inactive, and Support links are dead or missing. I recently couldn't even find a support contact for Creative (Soundblaster). The 1616 Microdock is a highly capable product, but its software is hard to figure out and compatibility for the constantly evolving Windows operating systems is questionable. Mine currently has stopped working with some of the software it worked with for years (using Windows XP and then Windows 7), and apparently some software (e.g. Audacity) does not support it at all. Online retailers should take this product off their "shelves."

How can I get my epson GT 700 scanner to work on windows XP


Once it is installed on Windows XP you can change the setting in properties to run Windows 98 compatible. It used to work with older scanners and printers. Try it out.

How to install os


This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step... http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htm http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/ew/2004/08/30/stories/2004083000250400.htm
