you get a copy of windows 98, pop in the disc, click upgrade (or fresh install if you don't wanna keep anything), and let her install. About 45 minutes after it reboots you should check on it because it has a dialog box for you then.
Indeed. If you have the windows 98 disc then just insert it into you CD rom drive and restart the computer. You should have the option of pressing any Key to boot from the CD. If not you need to hit delete a number of times when the machine 1st turns on to enter the Bios set up. In here you can change the boot order. Give your CD ROM drive the highest boot priority. Save & exit. Now you will have the option to boot from CD.
From here you are very much guided by the onscreen prompts. It's a straightforward process.
you may face either harddisk failure, a driver problem or virus infection:
tools: original win98-cd (or a bootable image
version of it), antivir-software on cd!
- please check whether it is possible to boot from win98-cd, with cd-rom support, not from harddisk.
(such option should be availabe after bios-load is over)
leave the setup process without fully installing (press F3 button when asked for repair or install option)
in both cases :
type at the dos-prompt:
(command for changing to harddisk, windows-folder, booting windows from harddisk, but without loading all the drivers as usually)
win98 should come up in protected mode or give error messages.
- access cd-drive and execute vir-scan. - delete and/or repair infected files - turn down, attempt to reboot from hd - if still impossible reboot from win98-cd, run repair of installation and try once again standard boot
problem solved? if not, take down error messages consult fixya again!
How to Install Windows 98
Insert the Windows 98 Startup disk in the floppy disk drive, and then restart your computer.
When the Windows 98 Startup menu is displayed, choose the Start computer with CD-ROM support option, and then press ENTER.
If CD-ROM support is provided by the generic drivers on the Startup disk, you receive one of the following messages, where X is the drive letter that is assigned to your CD-ROM drive:
Drive X: = Driver MSCD001
Drive X: = Driver OEMCD001
NOTE: If your CD-ROM drive is not available after you boot
from the Windows 98 Startup disk, install the CD-ROM drivers that are
included with your CD-ROM drive. For information about how to obtain
and install the most current driver for your CD-ROM drive, view the
documentation that is included with your device, or contact your
Insert the Windows 98 CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER

You need to find what DVD reading and CD and also DVD burning software you had, then download versions of the programs compatible with Win 98--then they should work fine. Your CD/DVD drives will be ignored until you get the correct burning software installed. Go t Samsung, which hopefully will have the appropriate downloads for Win98. If Samsung no longer has what you need, find any software for Win98 such as Roxio, or hopefully freeware, and you should be back in business.
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...
