    What is the Hardware ID of that Ethernet Controller? (VEN & DEV)

    Have you tried the latest LAN drivers from Intel for XP? They might work...or not. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18717/Network-Adapter-Drivers-for-Windows-XP-Final-Release?product=36773

    Last Versions of Software for Windows 98SE

    I can't really think of any other software that is reasonably up to date in terms of modern hardware detection that works on Windows 98 SE, other than AIDA64 and HWINFO32. You should really give AIDA64 a try, either it will work fine, or you will have a BSOD. I had AIDA64 working fine with 82.69 drivers, but then it suddenly stopped working and I do not know why is that. That was with the same program version, so that wasn't the problem! I've been discussing this issue with the authors of AIDA64, as you can see here: https://forums.aida64.com/topic/4017-windows-98se-blue-screen-of-death-with-the-kerneldw9x-llkd/ They can't seem to reproduce the issue I'm experiencing, so it's all a matter of being lucky AIDA64 has some HW monitoring overlays, but I do not know if they work with Windows 98 SE. There's no FPS monitor, I can't think of anything else than Fraps 1.9d. I haven't used HWINFO32 much but I know it works, but the functionality is limited there, unlike AIDA64.

    Windows ME VIA AC'97 not working

    Ooh! That explains why A405 and A406 never worked for me when I had the ASRock K8Upgrade-NF3 motherboard with Windows 98 SE! PS: Some drivers include WDMSTUB.SYS in their packages!
  5. This site may be useful for you: http://www.activewin.com/faq/faq_7.shtml http://www.activewin.com/directx/directx8.shtml Since I'm not interested in Windows 95 at all, I don't have any background about DirectX 8.0a/b limitations/features.

  7. Are you using these drivers? https://www.asix.com.tw/download.php?sub=driverdetail&amp;PItemID=97 You can try replacing the sys file with the Windows XP version, have low hopes for this but don't have any other ideas right now.
  8. What is the device hardware ID of that adapter?

    @ruthanYou can try AIDA64, it has some disk benchmarks: https://www.aida64.com/downloads/NTEzMWY5ZTE= Latest beta version still works natively on Windows 98 SE. Although you might have a BSOD if you have an NVIDIA card, in that case, you can use VBEMP to avoid that problem.
  10. This all seems logical, I had some problems with 3DMark 2001SE with 1GB of RAM, even if the rest of the system worked fine, that disappeared when limiting the amount to 512MB. I myself stand that having the amount of RAM between 512MB and 1024MB may still cause unexpected problems, like me or OP had, even if the system boots up correctly. I never had ANY problems with using 512MB of RAM or below. Put: MaxPhysPage=20000 in the [386enh] section in the system.ini file inside the Windows directory. This will limit the amount of RAM to 512MB. If you still encounter issues, try MaxPhysPage=10000 This will limit the amount of RAM to 256MB, although I don't think that would be necessary.
  11. Have you tried different PCI slots on your motherboard? What are the rest of the system specs? (CPU, GPU, RAM)
  12. Thanks @rloew! With the USBD.SYS file copied, the USB controllers are enumerated correctly, and USB Flash Drive and USB Sound Card is working fine! I had to also copy USBHUB.SYS. Also, if anyone wants to run 98SE on X230 and alike, make sure to disable USB UEFI BIOS Support in the BIOS once you've installed the system, because it causes major startup delay for whatever reason.
  13. I have it setup like that already, I have the latest 2.74 BIOS/UEFI. There's no problem with using USB flash drivers in the BIOS/UEFI, and in other operating systems. It's the way the motherboard/PCH was designed that is the problem. And how Windows 98/USB drivers can't handle that.
  14. On my ThinkPad X230, there's no OHCI controller present in the system, all the USB ports are handled by the EHCI and XHCI controllers, I can disable the XHCI controller in the BIOS/UEFI, but that's about it. Now, since there's no OHCI controllers, Windows 98 SE does not pick up any USB devices when installed. When I've tried to install the unofficial USB 2.0 drivers, I get Code 2 on the USB Hub, which means USB does not work at all. Does USB 2.0 on Windows 98 SE require OHCI/UHCI (USB 1.1) controllers to be present before hand?

    How to run "welcome.exe" from Win98 on newer Windows?

    From what I know, Windows ME welcome works very differently, I haven't tested it. All files you need are on the setup CABs in the CD of the system, I can't share them here. I don't know if the registry is needed in the first place, but all the instructions are on the screenshot itself. You also need win.wbm in the WELCOME folder, it got cut off in the screenshot, sorry Even if you managed to get it working, the buttons don't do anything, it's just a useless show piece. Off-topic - Welcome.exe also works on Wine on my Arch Linux laptop
