Because I have detective skills I found one good bootable CD for Windows 98 and decided to throw it out of the window.
Well, well let's get serious now, shall we?
Thanks to this CD I learned why it's called bootable - I can install it on bare bones hardware and run the setup directly from there.
So far so good, the install went fine, I saw my favorite loading screen, then the white mouse, the blue screen of life (BSOL)...Everything was like in a dream except the drivers!
I mean that something went totally wrong - when the usual screen arrived and Windows started detecting my hardware it started also asking me to insert the install CD for the drivers. The CD was there, the path for some reason was to the Windows folder (I don't know why and I don't know what is the path of the CD). Anyway no drivers were found because of the "missing CD". I stopped the VB at this point. Where is my mistake?
Notes: I removed the CD at one point after the install and after the question for the CD I inserted it again. I was doing this with Virtual Box.
I have a strange hope that my Acer will someday say "welcome" to my first and favorite OS...
EDIT: Looks like I was blind for some options. I will see what I can do about it.
EDIT 2: Nope, looks like I don't understand fdisk properly.
