  1. This is one of many works of the famous Neil Cicierega, nothing wrong with that or him, it's all just fiction and art and nothing that the author truly believes in, chill out
  2. Never had any issues installing XP from USB using WinSetupFromUSB. Choose your USB Stick, check 'Auto Format', select NTFS. Check Windows XP, point to unpacked XP setup files, and go!
  3. Seeing as Windows ME does not have this issue, it might be possible to actually fix it for 98SE. But yes, buying the cheapest router from TP-Link or something, dedicated only to 98SE machines, is a better and more flexible solution. Used cheap routers are abundant and cost not much more than a few bags of chips and some soda
  4. Are you using VBEMP or the stock VGA.DRV driver? Try using SVGA driver from Win3.1 in Safe Mode like here: https://msfn.org/board/topic/69569-improving-windows-98-safe-mode Can you try a different motherboard?
  5. It seems VirtualBox authors are not keen on addressing the issue, and just tell users to use AC'97 on Windows XP: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=38886 https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/16609 Can you provide the device ID for the HD Audio that VirtualBox emulates?
  6. Latest AMD GPU supported on XP is HD 7970 / 8970 OEM / R9 280X (all three have same device ID).
  7. Take a look here: https://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Commodore_64_emulators As for the issue in topic, try putting all files from all disks to one giant folder and install from that folder using DOS...unless that's what you tried already. I know this trick works for Windows 3.1, not sure at all about older versions. You can also try different Windows 1 versions from WinWorld for example, maybe they behave differently. (like 1.04) I don't have any meaningful experience with Windows prior to 3.1, as there's no practical reason to use anything older than 3.1...unless someone really wants to stick to the 8088
  8. Use 86Box or PCem for having fun with such old Windows versions. Both programs can emulate period-correct real hardware that Windows 1.01 will be happy to work with. This will make for a much better and fun experience than just forcing it to run on a real hardware. Also look here for some fun you can have with Windows 1: http://toastytech.com/guis/win1x2x.html
  9. DOSSOUND is not a DOS driver for AC'97/HD Audio! It's just a custom interface/API to play WAV files (with example programs included), it doesn't work with any existing DOS programs as it does not provide any Soundblaster/OPL interface that programs can use. Useless in your case. There are no DOS drivers for AC'97/HD Audio! If there's no option to add some kind of a sound card like on a laptop (and if there's no LPT port to use something like OPL2LPT), best bet is to...use DOSBox under Windows 98 SE (as stupid as this idea sounds, I know )
  10. I see that you've bought a wifi card that I recommended. It's weird that you don't have any networks listed. As others said, try the new wifi card using Windows 2000 or XP and see if the networks show up there. You can also try Debian from the Linux side of things. The "File is not installed" text in Device Manager is normal, I have it as well and Wi-Fi works fine regardless. Try also this older drivers for Windows 9x and see if the networks show up in Odyssey, maybe the latest one doesn't work with all Atheros cards... Also, have you connected the antennas to the WiFi card? Driver.zip
  11. http://ftp.unicamp.br/pub/apoio/iexplorer/ie60sp1/ie60sp1.zip This seems to be a Portuguese version of IE6 SP1, try it.
  12. I haven't found a solution for the long startup time when a USB pendrive is connected. Is it really stuck for you, or just takes a long time to start up? I haven't encountered USB pendrives making 98SE unbootable.
  13. https://www.allbootdisks.com/download/98.html https://www.allbootdisks.com/download/me.html Use the "No Ramdrive" versions.
  14. In Windows ME, you need to use MSConfig to set up DOS keyboard, there's no keyb command on ME, read here: https://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/6029-dos-program-in-windows-me-problem/ Check if Spear of Destiny works fine on 98SE.
  15. I never bothered with Min/MaxFileCache. PATCHMEM and ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 is enough, regardless of how much RAM you have.
