Getting old software/games running on older hardware.

Installing win98 without cd/floppy/usb/other pc

Postby TheCoach » 2017-1-27 @ 00:24

What I am looking for is a way to connect another hdd to this pc that is running winxp, format that drive with fat32, SYS it with DOS 7.x and copy over win98 install files over it.
However I can't find anything on this on the internet, everyone needs to involve floppies, cds or usb bootable drives.

Let's say I only have this one single computer and a couple of hard drives, how do I proceed.

Copy the install directory from the disk to the harddrive, then mount that harddrive into the PC you want to install 98 on and install from there.

I don't know the step-by-step procedure from top of my head though.

This forum is for Windows games on modern systems. You should ask old hardware and old OS questions here: viewforum.php?f=60

Sorry, thanks for the info I'll post a thread there, this one can be deleted I guess.
