How to install sco openserver 5.0.6 enterprise editon in sata hard disk in intel core 2 duo processor.

1. For better compatibility with new hardware, try 5.0.7. for best compatibility, move to 6.0. 2. Look in your CMOS setup for SATA controller options. You must use "Legacy" or "Compatibility" mode. 3. You must use a disk 120gb or smaller. While you can probably install successfully on a larger disk, you will get file and data corruption.
There are other considerations, most of which you can find out about on SCO's website - Support - Knowledgebase.

How to install drivers in windows 98 SE loaded win98 in a new PC, need all updates, drivers, etc.

why win98se? I was a fan of win98se but ...

all drivers for winMe are ok.
use google with "MBcode win98se drivers download" . You may try with winme instead win98se . You'll encounter problems if your mb is very old and you need to properly install isa cards .

win98se,mb drivers, sound, video,lan in this order. dont forget that win98se accepts drivers from 95/98/ME . Them must have the inf file . I liked to made manual instalation of every drive (update driver, browse to location of inf file....).

If it's a USB card reader, go here and download the universal USB driver for Win98 or Win98SE:

One of my machines is Win98 and this driver has never failed me. Install the driver first, then plug in the device and the hardware wizard will detect it and do the install.


If instead you have a 9-in-1 reader that goes in a 3.5 inch bay (like a diskette drive), that is an IDE device and needs to be attached like hard drive or CD-ROM, then your operating system will recognize it.

HD Audio Hardware

Hi, To be able to help you on what audio driver to install, pls specify brand, model and version of your motherboard. If not printed on the MB itself, maybe you can check the info on POST or visually check the audio chipset on the mobo. Pls post back the info/details. Kind regards.
