If the windows xp isn't an upgrade from 98 then it will install on your computer over the 98 without problem, bearing in mind that all information on the disk will be lost once you format it with the disk, but if it's an upgrade disk you might have to check with your friends to see if they have the same version of 98, the other thing if the computer came with 98 installed the product key should be on the case on the back or the side is normal postioning for this altho some techs use to put in the inside of the case.
hope this helps.

98 windows upgraded to xp pro need passkey


Enter the product key which you have got when you have purchased the windows xp Upgrade cd the product key would be at the back of the CD cover and if you have lost the product key or if the product key is misplaced please call the microsoft toll free number and they would be generating the new product key based on the part number on the back of the installation CD.

Product key of windows 98


Asking for a "product-key" is SOFTWARE PIRACY.

Note that Microsoft stopped issuing security-updates for Windows 98 several years ago, and will stop issuing security-updates for Windows 2000 after July 2010.

So, install Windows XP, or buy a new computer, and a newer version of Microsoft Windows (Vista or 7) will be preinstalled.

I had Windows 98 OS on my desktop and I wiped it out and installed Windows XP. My system performed better before I did this, how do I get rid of XP and reinstall Windows 98? I don't have the Windows 98 CD...


If you don't have the Windows 98 CDROM, or an image backup of your Windows 98 installation (if you don't know what an image is then you don't have one) then you're in a tough spot.<br><br>
You can't just "go back" to your Windows98 machine, you will have to reinstall Windows 98 from a CDROM. So you will have to find a disc from someone/somewhere and hope it's the same version of 98 that your product key was for (if you have the product key). Or you can purchase a new copy of Windows 98SE. They cost around $55 from several websites (viosoftware.com for one).<br><br>
On another note, if you computer is running slower with XP it's most likely due to the amount of RAM being low. Try to get at least 1GB of RAM in your current PC and you'll probably see XP run better. You could also try installing Ubuntu, it's a free operating system.

If your talking about Windows 98 Product Key which is asked for when installing Windows 98. Well because Windows 98 is not supported anymore by Microsoft. They have given out a Generic Product Key that is said to work on any Windows 98 CD. The generic key is: VP9VV-VJW7Q-MHY6W-JK47R-M2KGJ.

I have the Windows 98 disk not have lost the key codes, I am trying to reinstall this onto a new hard drive with no operating system so I can then upgrade to windows xp, help anyone?


You don't need a windows 98 disk to install XP. It will load directly from your Cd drive. You have to set the bios to be the first boot disk. It is much easier to install XP on an empty drive than to upgrade.
