98 SE SP 3.32

2,361 posts in this topic

Thanks guys, but as you know, to buy something, one needs money first and then access to the "market"; I have neither, in this country. Some of my hardware is pretty old, most BIOS implementations do not know LBA48 and some of the older ones barely accept 32GB HDDs or even less (such as the 486 which only takes 526MB IDE HDDs).

Anyway, this discussion is off-topic, let's not deviate. Thank you for trying to help!

Yes it is off-topic (my apologies), so I'll make this brief ...

Firstly, should you find yourself with about US$3 to spare, at least one of the vendors on eBay offers "Free shipping - Romania - Standard Int'l Shipping" for this item.

As regards the BIOS limitations, yes, the 32GB limitation on most (but not all) Award 4.51PG BIOS's is a nasty one. Since the SATA adaptor I have doesn't provide a "32GB clip" option, your solution to using a modern HDD is to configure such a 32G limit using Seagate's "SeaTools for DOS" utility (the Windoze version doesn't give you this capability). Do this on a machine that doesn't have the 32GB bug, then transfer it to the afflicted machine.

For the earlier "528MB" limit, you used to be able to download OEM versions of OnTrack's Disk Manager 9.X (or similar alternative DDO's) for free from Seagate, Maxtor, etc. This lets you reach at least 7.8GB (I don't remember if you could go higher). The OnTrack DDO used about 5K of conventional RAM and didn't affect HDD performance.

Joe.

Request permission :blushing: to adapt the Service Pack 3.0 Final to Spanish :thumbup

Check compatibility with USB Drivers. The new USBEHCI.SYS or USBSTOR.SYS failure?

I recently lost my 98SE install to a power fluctuation and began experimenting with new stuff and that's some of my experiences, I hope this is of use to someone :

I can say that do not install this SP after you have installed and run AutoPatcher. You will break the system so it will not even boot to safe mode. But installing SP3 and then AutoPatcher works out perfectly. AP will skip any update that SP3 put newer version of so there are no problems in sight, not for me ^^

Only thing that did not work out so well was NUSB35, I got exclamation mark in device manager and updating etc. did not help, but going to NUSB33 fixed it. I need to see if putting NUSB35 separately helps.

It usbser.sys 4.10.2224 to KB308349

In my case, I think failure: usbser.sys 5.1.2600.5512 from SP3 to downgrade 4.10.0.2224 fix it

I'm wrong

The file was failing Usbehci.sys

I clarify for anyone reading my message

Maximus-Decim Native USB Drivers does not contain a Usbser.sys

I think that between version 3.3 and 3.5 NUSB should not this be the difference.

Maximun Decim has nothing to do with usbser.sys

You're right I correct

It usbser.sys 4.10.2224 to KB308349

One could try usbser.sys 5.0.2195.7006 last update http://bristols.zxq.net/windows2000/updates/ # kb813503 Not as I Do

Module has no missing import links after running wdmcheck. It may be safe to use this version. I will test it.

If all goes well it will be in the next update.

Usbser.sys 5.0.2195.7006 comes from KB838417 which itself is buggy.

I'll test both versions USBSER.SYS 5.0.2195.6655 + 5.0.2195.7006.

The one that works best will be suitable for SP3. Thanks :thumbup

Remplaced Usbehci.sys 5.1.2600.1515 -> Usbehci.sys 5.0.2195.6882 NUSB3.5

I may have found a bug in "Intel® 82801EB (ICH5 Family) USB2 Enhanced Host Controller -24DD" of my COMPAQ D530 after installed latest 98 SESP 3.0 FINAL.

The controller referred to USBEHCI.SYS 5.1.2600.1515(xpsp2.040410-0905). Fixing it I changed USBEHCI.SYS to v.5.00.2195.6882

The file works on most systems, so what I will do since only a few are having this problem, I will note and add the USBEHCI.SYS v.5.00.2195.6882.

I also like the start menu banner, can you send it to me. Nice video btw. Thanks again.
