  1. Unfortunately I had no luck. I managed to change Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller to one Primary IDE and got one of my DVD drives to recognize, but that caused slowdown and BSOD. To make matters worse, I could not install my ATI Win98SE drivers for my PCI-Express X800XL, which was supposed to be supported. I tried to check my bios and could not make any changes. I looked into the Windows 98/ME - Unified Driver as well but no go. I am going to try a couple of things tomorrow, but if not, I'll give XP a new look. I guess I got too powerful hardware. But thanks for all your help.
  2. Thanks for replying everyone. I will try your advice and hopely I'll have some luck. Otherwise, I might have to say goodbye to Windows 98SE.
  3. Hey. I need help from the Win98SE elite here. I've been trying to dual boot with some success. But I ran into a big error with Win98SE: "Your Multi-function device "Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller" has some child devices using 32-bit drivers and others using compatibility mode drivers. Their Configuration is not supported, so your computer has been halted to prevent corruption. After you restart your computer, Windows will use compatibility-mode drivers for each child device attached to this multi-function device. If you want to use 32-bit drivers, you may be able to obtain an updated driver for the device that caused the problem by contacting your hardware manufacturer or you can disable the device. Press any Key to Continue." Now I saw some solutions, like removing noide from registy and removing the PCI controller. But it continues to reinstall it and I can't find any drivers. I'm using a Nvidia Nforce 4 Ultra motherboard by BFG Tech, 2 Sata hard drives and 2 IDE DVD drives. My computer won't recognize the DVD drive in 98 but XP can use them. If anyone knows a good solution, I'll try it. Thanks!
  4. In reply to Krick, that was what I had planned too. I've already ordered a computer w/ 120GB as the first drive then 160GB. I'm just wondering if there are going to be issues with the drives being SATA.
  5. Thanks MDGx. I will print out those steps for my installation. About the hard disks, I was planning on installing Win98SE on the 120GB-FAT32 and WinXP Pro/SP2 on the 160GB-NTFS. I only want Win98SE to see only its drive.
  6. I have a question about installation. I'm planning on getting a new computer w/ 2GB RAM, Athlon 64 FX-55 CPU, two hard drives (120GB & 160GB), and I want to install both Win98SE and WinXP Pro. I plan on using the service pack steps, but are there any immediate issues with installing Win98SE on a drive without an operating system with 2GB RAM? If so, are there any remedies I can do before I order a PC, like reduce RAM to 1GB or have additional software available?
