Hi,

Should work in WinXP except slow. Perhaps you may want to add memory to make it at least 256 preferably 512.

XP Drivers are available at >  http://h18000.www1.hp.com/
click on "Get Support"
tick Software & Driver downloads
type "Presario 5000 desktop"
choose exact model number
Select your operating system WinXP
Download drivers you need.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Run only win 98.get's blue screen when trying to install win xp,vista on win7


you get this message when there is some hardware which is incompatible or fails / crashes during the installation of OS since you have tried a different hard disk already it cannot be that so try with a different Ram or update bios / replace motherboard.

My system is intel dualcore 2.66 ghz intel dg31pr how i can operate win 98 se with drivers support


I think now a days no hardware manufacturer support Windows 98 OS so it's tough to get the drivers for Win98. All other OS are supported, you can get the drivers here

I want to get my files from my barracuda 7200.10 hard disk by running a windows 98 os from a hard disk from another pc. ive already run the win98 os but i dont think i set the my .10 to slave so i dont see...


Just remove the jumper of your hard disk to set it it to slave as you will see on the instruction pasted on your disk. If your disk is formatted NTFS, win98 will not be able to read your files use a machine with winxp operating system.

Formatting IBM Thinkpad 600E


I know you can't boot from the Windows 98 CD, and probably not from Windows 2000 either. It is possible to turn the the Windows 98 bootable floppy into a bootable CD, but I think you would be much better of trying to install Linux.

May be a bios problem


Sounds like it is a hard disk issue. Corrupted MBR. Or missing Boot Loader. Your partition must be Fat32 since Win98 won't recognize NTFS. Try running chkdsk if not successful than repartition and format. BIOS is OK since you stated it will install windows. Corrupted BIOS won't allow pc to load. From a win98 bootdisk choose not to load cd. From the dos prompt type FDISK /Status If more than 1 partition check active partition settings.

98 loading error message


When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.
