Hello everyone, sorry for my bad English xD I want to install Windows 98 SE in my pc. This is my config:

Intel dual core e5200 2.5 ghz (I sometimes OC it)

4 gb ram

gts 250

500 gb hdd sata

lcd 22" full hd

My motherboard is "p5kpl-am epu".

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5KPLAM_EPU/#specifications

Chipset Intel® G31 / ICH7.

Are there some drivers compatible with windows 98?

edit - forgot to mention DO read the "stickies" for what to do to install if you have LOTS of ram and LARGE HDD's and ANYTHING to do with SATA (e.g. leave in PATA/IDE Mode).

Thanks for the reply ;D I have a problem... I can't download it.

I just tried that link. It's wasn't "blocked" for me, but I did get a "not available" error.

With a newer machine like that you might also consider just running Win98 in a VM.

Cheers and Regards

CPU: Only one core is working

system.ini: required:

[386Enh]

MaxPhysPage=40000 better 48000

[vcache]
MaxFileCache=393216

BIOS:

Storage Configuration > ATA/IDE Coniguration > set Compatible

There is no 98 driver for the onboard graphics IntelGMA 3100 and probably no for onboard sound and LAN.

A driver for ATK 0110 virtual device isn't needed.

The board has only two PCI slots. If you use a PCIE graphics card, then there is only space for one sound or LAN card.

thanks guys! I have installed windows 98. I managed to install the network driver. Now, I'm trying to install the driver of my gts 250.... It's really hard. I'm using the vesa driver for now.

Hello guys, I have bought these components in order to install windows 98 on my pc xD (geforce 7300, an audio pci card and a network pci card), so my pc config is:

Intel dual core e5200 2.5 ghz

4 gb ram

geforce 7300 le (the gts250 doesn't have the drivers :( )

p5kpl-am

network pci card and audio pci card...

I managed to install windows 98, but there is a problem now... Windows 98 sees my intel dual core e5200 as a pentium 3 :| why?

I tried to install windows 98 on my "gaming" pc, which have a phenom x3... Windows 98 sees it as a phenom x3 xD

I applied the XraYer' method for the ram (HIMEMX), i really want to use the rleow patch, but I don't have money to buy it :/

Maybe the BIOS version is too old or a wrong cpu micro code.

Try Everest Home Edition, it'll tell you the true specs of the CPU. As long as it is reporting the right instructions, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't know if unofficial service pack 3 will add anything to it or not, I doubt it but either way, you'll probably want to get it on your machine.

It's a CPUID problem in SYSDM.CPL.

I guess what rloew is saying is... Ignore it (just a stupid bug), it works fine, be happy.

Hello everyone, two month ago I have upgraded my pc with

Amd fx 6300

Asrock 970 Extreme 3

4 gb ram

gts 250 (I know, it is old... But I don't have money to buy a new vga for now xD I know gts 250 doesn't work with windows 98 because of lack of drivers... Don't worry, I bought two geforce 6800 last month (PCI-E).

Now, is it possible to run windows 98 on this machine? I found an interesting thing... If I connect the Hard disk and the dvd-rom in sata 5 and e-sata, it is possible to run them in Ide compatible mode :D

 

 

 

P.S:The Onboard LAN on ASROCK 970 EXTREME 3 motherboard is a "Realtek RTL8111E"... If I'm not wrong, there is a driver for it, right? Where can I found it? If it doesn't exist, don't worry^^ I have also an external audio and lan PCI board.

 

 

Sorry for my bad English.
