Have dual boot system,W98SE/XP. Resised both partitions with Easeus to make room for Windows 7 RC. XP is fine but 98 won't boot up. Black screen/white cursor top left. Use 98 a lot for my work.


Windows 7 cannot be installed on FAT 32 system, which is required by 98. Windows 7 needs NTFS which may actually cause the issue as it is not compatible with FAT32.

Are all of the O/s are in different partitions?

HOW DO YOU INSTALL A SECOND OS ON A SLAVE DRIVE. I AM RUNNING WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION. I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION ON A SLAVE DRIVE DISC. SOME PROGRAMS I HAVE WILL NOT WORK ON XP.


You cannot install 98 directly on your system slave drive, but there is a way to install it.

1) disconnect your primary drive
2) make your slave drive as primary.
3) install 98
4) Connect your actual primary drive again and start your system

XP records your mac id of your motherboard and 98 does not records, the other way is, you can install both the OPS on your one primary drive by creating different partitions, you will need to full format your drive first.

1) Full format your primary drive.
2) Create partitions.
3) Install 98.
4) Install XP in different drive of your same hard disk

You will be able to see both your OPS when you start your system.

Windows 98 won't boot up


Hi,
Can you run Win98 in Safe Mode? Just tap F8-F10 or Del or Esc on booting (It's different buttons on different machines) to enter Advanced Settings and run Win98 in Safe Mode. You can get access to your files, and maybe even System Restore back to a point before you had the problem?
Worth a try..

Hope this helps
