Normally the F8 key goes to option whether to boot up in safe mode or the last known bootup session. and the Delete key for the Bios setup. Or the F2. try these.

Tried inserting recovery cd-rom in satellite P10 (windows XPHome) and first screen shows message about running Windows98! Aborted process and PC is OK. Is it safe to proceed?


should be. It looks like someone updated that computer from Win 98 to XP - that's why the recovery disks are for Win 98. You should be ok to proceed if you didn't do any of the recovery. Are you able to use System Restore to force computer to revert to an earlier time when everything was working ok?

Why is my ethernet driver missing ? where can i get an update done from ?


Well, there are a lot of reasons to cause your driver missing or outdated.

As to the solution, I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best regards!

If you do a new, clean install of XP in 2018, one would be missing hundreds of updates from Microsoft that would be very hard if not impossible to get. Some of those updates might apply to software that you want to use in conjunction with Windows XP. And if it is an older PC, you might not be able to find driver support for the particular make/model, and XP might not have the drivers you need. How many times have you heard someone say, "I just reinstalled XP, but now I am missing drivers?"

This could be part of your trouble, because even if your XP updated all the way up to April 2014, you could still be missing HP updates provided by HP/Microsoft through Windows Update.

Since Microsoft has not supported XP since April 2014, I would recommend not using it anymore in 2018.

How do I get a Win 98 SE computer to talk to a USB II external disc running from a Thermaltake deck dock with a SATA disc in the dock?


to be honest you have more of a chance of hell freezing over, win 98 se although being the better out of the lot, you will never get the drivers for it, usb2 will never work with that os and it will never recognise the sata disk, you could try using win xp drivers for it, but i very much doubt you will get any response, your best bet would be to upgrade to xp...sorry its negative, but Microsoft stopped updates for 98 years ago...

I wish to dual boot on a U8668-D motherboard P4M266A-8235 Pentium 4 2.8 mhz I would like to update the problem as I want to run Win 98 & Win XP on the same computer. I have been trying to download the...


flashing or updating the bios is a critical step, make sure there's an actual and valid need to do this as if something goes wrong while you do it your motherboard will be dead afterwards.
now.. instructions on how to update your bios can be found here

for dual boot installation make sure you create 2 partions, install 98 first in one and xp, second, in the other partition

for more info on dual-booting check this

good luck!

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Peachtree Complete for DOS on WIN 98 says GL not found


Run command prompt as administrator. Enter chkdsk /f as command

Suspect reinstallation of the Peachtree program would necessarily follow that. What points to the G/L file was corrupted by the power failure. If you can uninstall Peachtree without loss of the data, the forementioned may fix the problem. sAfter all, if the error message is that the Programs for GL are not found, reinstallation should replace those programs. I think Peachtree 11 was an update which worked on XP. Note that one person tried to update to XP Pro from Home XP and it took Peachtree 11 hours to make the transition. Gives you a bit of a pause. Set up backups if you use Peachtree. Hope these ideas help. There was a Peachtree for Dummies book written in that period, FYI,
