Re: Win98

Mada, Are you asking if it is hard to install W98 or are you haveing problems? Its not too hard, however, W98 is no longer support my Microsoft which means no more updates. If this is not connected to the Internet that probably isn't a big deal for simple computing work. If you do expect to connect it to the Internet the lack of updates will put you at severe risk of compromise. If you are having some other difficulty please post the exact issue, problem or error message.

Hello here is the homepage:

So it will probably not run, on this mainboard.

Try with a smaller amount of ram.

Good luck

if you know the installation of winxp and win98 then it is possible to create a system with mercury board with 98 and xp.
firstly you install win xp in your computer. it's automatically located in c drive. then you intall win 98 custom install and then choose the installation directory of another drive like d. you use any boot manager to boot the pc with win98 and winxp. i don't tell you the installation process step by step. so don't mind.

Windows 98 on P4 DC

Hi there

No ways , first of all Windows 98 doesn't recognise sata drives and will not boot even from a sata dvd writer, there are no drivers for Windows 98 to display correctly and you will have trouble running Windows 98 above 256 MB RAM

Motherboard supporting both windows-98 and win-XP-pro

it would be difficult to advise you as to which board to go for, as there are many different things to take into consideration, i would look at and choose one then do a google search for any buyers comments. The problem with Win 98 is that newer mobo,s will not have driver support for it, as with Win98 you have to continually revert back to your win98 cd to install certain files which are no longer compatible with new boards. If you wish to dual boot a system; using XP and vista would be more suitable for the type of hardware you will be using.
