Re: Big problem no windows 98 un-locking Key
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.

Yes, you could still use your older desktop. Most probably you could reformat your pc and install the more advance operating system like windows 2000 or xp. It depends on the specification of your desktop.
Have you tried booting the system with the restore disk, well it should reformat the system before it installs a fresh copy of windows 98 so you should back-up data before proceeding and check the boot sequence in your bios, set the first boot device to CD/DVD.
If XP will not install from the CD or if you have a new drive with no operating system onit yet try these:
Install Windows XP from the hard drive with Windows 98 already installed:
Boot Windows 98 Insert the XP CD into your CD reader Explore Windows XP through My Computer Copy i386 folder to C:\ Go into C:\i386 folder and double click on winnt32.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive
Install Windows XP from DOS (ie. no OS on a new hard drive):
Boot with a Windows 98 Start Up disk Insert the Windows 98 CD into the CD reader Run smartdrv.exe from the Win98 directory on the windows 98 CD (file caching) Type cd.. to back up to the root directory Insert Windows XP CD into the CD reader Copy the i386 folder to C:\ Go into C:\i386 folder on C: and type winnt.exe to launch the setup from the hard drive.
you have to reformat the hard from the xp cd when get to the part to delete partitons delete all partions then create a new partion then format to ntfs and most of the drives will come if not all if not you need to now the manufacture and model to get drives but reformat the harddrive first....
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.
