I am wondering if someone who has had a job in the industries of computer science and engineering could help me get my ideas in order.
Is there a cost effective way I could have developed by paid experts a means of running Windows 98 using SeaBios on a hardware target that is both supported by SeaBIOS yet too advanced to be supported by Windows 98?
I assume that a level 1 hypervisor like esxi or ms-hyperV do not have the customization that SeaBIOS could provide.
You could make a list of features supported by SeaBIOS for a given hardware target and have experts add new features to Win98.
Those hypervisors work only within a single instruction set architecture, executing opcodes in a virtual processor sharing the instruction set .
Isn't this a disadvantage?
But if you have Win 98 and SeaBIOS, SeaBIOS could emulate x86 instructions for Win98 on an IA-32 motherboard.
I am aware of aspects of Win 98 that would not be available for reprogramming. But am thinking about programming aspects of Win 98 that are available for getting it to take advantage of the system hardware.
