If you need an operating system and would not mind using linux (an alternative to windows) look on the www.puppylinux.com site and see if you would like to try it. the download is about 80meg and it runs very fast on all the computers i have used it with. or try looking on softpedia for a free download of the outdated windows xp install disks. or you can buy some disks from ebay. but i reccomend trying puppy linux, it is free and you have nothing to lose.(the disk is a live boot disk, so it should just run off the cd)

No operating system found on a gateway solo 9300 laptop


if the hard drive has been completely erased then you will need to boot from a windows disc and re-install windows on it.

Install windows 98se


SE should boot on it's own without the use of the floppies. Try it by changing the boot sequence.

You may want to run chkdsk on the hard drive to fix any errors. Use the fix switch on syntax.

How do you get an external sata disc mounted in a dock (Thermaltake Black X dock) to communicate with a WIN 98 SE system? The box says the dock supports WIN 98 buit I cannot find drivers that work.


Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98 over two years ago,
and stopped supporting Windows 2000 on July 16, 2010.

So, any company that manufactures "new" (in the last two years) hardware probably will _NOT_ have written device-drivers for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Does the external disk work correctly when connected to a computer running Windows XP? Vista? 7 ?
If not, then maybe the external disk itself is the problem.

I am trying to set up a usb network connection in Windows 98, I don't have the disk to finish it. Can I get the dll files online?


Windows 98 does not support USB interfaces.
Windows 98 SE supports USB interfaces.
Which do you have? 98 or 98SE?

Windows 98 will not boot up


You could try running sfc scannow. See link here. And very helpful site for troubleshooting windows 98 here and here.
I couldn't tell you about downloading it, but I'd scan any download very carefully, and question whether you could trust an install done from such files to be secure. I'd try to find an original cd as they should be a dime a dozen these days...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
