  1. I currently own an Asrock 4coredual-sata2. For the record, everything works perfectly with Win98 on it (with the exception of the audio chipset - no win9x drivers AFAIK). It works fine with 2 graphic cards. Right now, Win98 uses a GeForce 6200 AGP and XP/7 a 460 GTX (for those interested, this gives surprisingly good performance in recent games, assuming the screen and thus, the resolution is not too big). Here's my problem : I tried to replace the 460 GTX with a 760 GTX. Unfortunatly, It freezes on startup (I get no POST display). It seems the 7xx serie is not compatable with the 4coredual-sata2... which means that 6xx serie is probably not either since they are based on the same chip. I'm thinking about buying a (used) Asrock 4core1333-GLAN or 4core1600-GLAN. They have P31/G31 + ICH7 chipsets and a Realtek RTL8111B/RTL8111C LAN. Does anyone have an experience with Win98 on this card ? Will it support my 760 GTX and a 5200 PCI card for Win9x ?
  2. If you don't want to go though the trouble of installing a boot manager like Grub (not that hard if you follow Dencorso's instructions), just know that your MOBO allows you to choose which disk you want to boot from. All you have to do is press F11 during startup. So, if your main system will be 98, you can just set the Boot priority to IDE in your BIOS. If you ever need to switch to Linux, all you have to do is press F11 at startup and select the SATA drive. This way, your disks would be fully independent and, if for some reason, one of them fails, you'll still be able to boot the other one.
  3. You can still find PCI ATI Radeon 9200 if you look carefully... The problem is, it should already work with your 6200, so you might face the same problem with a different card. You say it's a dos program ? Well, you might want to check if other DOS programs work from within Windows with the 6200 first. It could also be related to the fact you have 2 graphic cards. You could try to disable the integrated graphic card in BIOS (if possible) or at least in Windows, and see how it goes...
  4. I think I read your post correctly. Do mouse cursors not change? I am not sure if it is relevant to (what I perceive to be) your problem, but I found information from this site. I think he's just asking if one can display 32bits cursors (24bits truecolor + alpha channel) on Win9x. When he tries, alpha channel is missing. Foxbat answered the question : the Revolution Pack helps displaying 32bits colors icons but it does not provides cursors enhencements.
  5. To restore the boot splash, check the matching line in TweakUI, or just copy back "Logo.sys" and "Msdos.sys" from you windows CD to c:\. I'm a bit confused about the rest. What exactly do you mean by "I try to reinstall windows from the CD". ? Do you mean you reinstalled OVER your existing Windows install ?
  6. Merry Christmas everyone ! Joyeux Noël à tous !
  7. The list on this thread is just a list of 'tested' CPU but yours should work fine. AFAIK, no one has ever found a modern CPU not working with Win98 SE / Me. Just remember that win9x will only use one core from your Phenom.
  8. DVDFab Passkey is supposed to be able to remove this kind of thing. It won't work on 9x tough.
  9. Nice board. I have one too and it works just fine with my Q6600. You'll need drivers for the Aureal sound card tough. They're not easy to find if you lost the CD but look what I found here. You shoud not have any problems if you disable the motherboard integrated sound card in the BIOS and follow Dencorso's link about using 2gb of RAM.
  10. Wow, nice list you got there. B) Used this one for a while to sync files : simple, light, and free.
  11. Very nice! Default sorting has always been so awkward... By the way, I'm on it for the french translation.
  12. I'm not so sure about what you mean? Can you be clearer please? ...if you don't have those key/folder key, you should add them manually. Well actually, pasting the code in a .reg file should do the trick but if it doesn't, then add it.
  13. I too failed to install flash 10 with the instructions given on the KernelEx topic. It seems like using the registry modifications provided is not enough anymore. Actually, Adobe changed their OS checking process, which now looks at the service pack ID...). I used the following code to install it: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion] "CurrentVersion"="5.1" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows] "CSDVersion"=dword:00000200 And tada! Flash installs smoothly without the annoying "Unsupported OS" message. (Note : this was tested on KernelEx 4.0 Final 2 with Flash 10 for "other than IE browsers" but should work with 4.5 beta. I don't know about IE Flash 10)
  14. Xnview might be what your looking for. It's small, fast and deals perfectly with *.png. You can even display the transparency mask by itself.
  15. Interesting point. However, if you're worried, choose the paranoid mode. I should neutralize any virtual vulnerability.Thanks again Xeno86! Will upgrade as soon as I can.
