Re: how to install os

If you want to install windows 98 then u cannot do it by putting windows 98 cd while using xp operating system. Remember u can install XP from 98 but not 98 from XP. 1)Insert your windows 98 disk. 2) restart your pc and enter delete CMOS/BIOS setup will come. In that go to Advance settings in that change your boot1 device to CD-ROM. Then reboot your pc. Time will come when it will ask to install 98 in C: change it to D: if XP is in C: drive. If XP is in D: drive then vice versa. Then follow the instructions and install it.

Re: how to install os

This is a little difficult but it can B done :) Firstly I dunno if ya need to re-format ya drive? perhaps first ya could try to "Repair" of Win98? If that doesn't work,then, perhaps ya may have to re-format. If the Win98 is on a SEPARATE drive or Partition this also makes a difference.... Basically ... repair/re-install win98, then do a repair of ya Boot menu for XP, as Win98 sets up an incorrect Boot up for XP, and thus must be "Fixed" so XP will boot & show a Dual boot menu.. here are some links to help you step by step...

Restart your computer , at startup press F8 repeatedly.It then gives you boot options .Choose boot from CD drive.after that it asks again do you want to boot from cd and press then takes you through windows os setup, in the setup it asks where you want to install windows on what partition, select format excisting partition and partition unpartitioned space.after that its simple.

Windows 98 does not support Plug n Play Devices. So you have to download appropriate drivers from Microsoft Website. Though Windows 98SE ( Windows 98 Second Edition ) thought to be support USB Mass Storage Drives fairly, these drivers are not pre-installed with OS. You have to download Service packs to install these drivers.

Since Windows 98 have TWO versions, we have to download corresponding service packs .

You can

How to enter my bios and how to change my SATA mode to IDE because i want to migrate windows 7 and install xp pro 2005 and my installation did not work untill i downgrade my current (windows 7) os to xp...

Accessing the bios, read this Link

As for your installations, do you meant that you want a "Dual boot on your system" ie 2 Operating Systems on one PC? Win 7 & Win XP on the PC?

If you wish to know more on "Dual Booting" for your PC read, LINK1, LINK2

Before getting started, make sure your PC hardware must be Win 7 compatible? This type of installation & usage is not meant for the non savvy users, because "bugs" errors! usage after installation.

Hope it helps.
