Re: Windows 98 hard drive help


I think the Windows 98 disc is not a real critical boot disk. Just open the ISO in windows and copy the content should be enough.

No usb on this machine. 

I have the CF Card Adapter, but imaging the iso didn’t work. 

May have to try the partitioning. I don’t have a boot disk (yet) 

Thanks for the input

Several options

1. USB could work if available. Maybe need to boot from floppy.
2. Try a CompactFlash card (has the same pinout as ide, only smaller, adapters are cheap) as a harddrive and fill it with the windows setup
3. Try a SD IDE adapter
4, Connect the harddisk to a modern pc with a USB ide adapter, partition the drive and copy the windows setup to a second partition. Still have to boot from a floppy I think

Can anyone help me get a working Windows98 hard drive set up? 
I have the machine and a drive, but no way to get Windows 98 installed since the computer doesn't have a CDROM -- only floppy.
