Hi all, unsure if this was mentioned before (I did not see it)

Windows 98se fixes/patches for modern systems, by the great Rudolph R. Loew (sadly passed), are now public domain and have been added to:

Unofficial Windows 98 Second Edition Service Pack 3.65

In combination with u98se sp 3.65 (the topic of post) + kernelex + 98SE2ME, and optionally revolutions pack, allow 98se to run on "Most modern systems"

Proof, I have a ryzen 5 3600, 32gb ram, 4tb hdd...running windows 98se as only OS (install assisted via USB portable virtual box until patches were "in")

As a bonus, using his slipstream program, and winbuilder, I have made a:

Live 98se, that is bootable from USB, that supports "most current 2021 PC's"

Rudolph Loew apparently passed away in September 2019

The service pack we can probably get away with linking here but the "live" 98se cannot unless it's just a script to build it.

Ryzen 5 1600 has a VME bug, as a result it crashes as soon as installation is about to finish. Is it possible to slipstream the SP and make the OS work again?
