Install windows 98se


SE should boot on it's own without the use of the floppies. Try it by changing the boot sequence.

You may want to run chkdsk on the hard drive to fix any errors. Use the fix switch on syntax.

If you are trying to upgrade just insert the XP cd while you are at the ME deskyop and follow the instructions. You will get two options Upgrade or install a fresh copy you will be prompted to restart and the XP ce will boot (if it a bootable CD) from startup this process is designed to re-format your hard drive in install a new copy of the OS. I hope this works for you.

I have Windows XP on my computer mow but have one older program, Cadkey 97, that will not work on XP and requires Windows 98. What I need is a work around to use CK with XP or a way to have XP and 98 on...


Try using the XP compatibility wizard. Start > Programs > Accessories > Program Compatibility Wizard. There are ways to dual boot 98 and XP, but there are a lot of details involved. It requires a lot of research. Best to do a Google search for "dual boot windows 98 and XP". Here is one result:

I deleted win 95 then iwant to install win98


Indeed. If you have the windows 98 disc then just insert it into you CD rom drive and restart the computer. You should have the option of pressing any Key to boot from the CD. If not you need to hit delete a number of times when the machine 1st turns on to enter the Bios set up. In here you can change the boot order. Give your CD ROM drive the highest boot priority. Save & exit. Now you will have the option to boot from CD.

From here you are very much guided by the onscreen prompts. It's a straightforward process.

I need windows 98 instalation dump or vedio


Ha! That's the first OS I ever reloaded.....ah, memories.


I most certainly can help you with this.

Here's what you need to get:

Windows 98 boot floppy from here - http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm
(you need to know which version you are installing, Windows 98 or Windows 98SE)

Windows 98 or 98SE OEM CD


You will need to boot from your floppy disk first and format the hard drive which will prepare it for windows, then use it to boot your computer to the cd and the process will begin.

Here are some more detailed steps, the above is only in a nutshell:

That comes straight from Microsoft. Let me know if that helps you!

Hi matthewbugbe,

I think what that means is it does not recognize your hard drive. If you are trying to install Windows 98 you should format your drive first.
