Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
I am trying to (re) install windows 98 se into an older computer. I do not have the original CD-Rom but a gift copy. I made a start up floppy disk before I uninstalled my factory original 98 SE op system.
I have followed the instructions of the original owner's manual. I have tried microsoft onlin support instructions
I have ,on occasion, managed to get to startup wizard which "frrezes" (most recently) at 36%.
What's UP DOC?
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 need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.
Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.
I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.
Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.
