  1. Goodday everyone! I am posting this because I'm am crazy enough to reattempt (thinking about it now ) in getting windows 98 se to load on this compaq! To make things worse (for win98) this computer has been upgraded to 2.50 GB of RAM! This computer also has a 250 Gb SATA HD. It was pretty diffcullt even getting to the windows 98 installation since cd support didn't work due to the lack of real mode dos drivers for the DVD Rom, but I've manged to work around this by putting the win98 cab files and setup on the hard disk through flash drive using a linux live cd! But it still wasn't successful through installation even after editing the system ini. Referred to this topic: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/129983-how-to-install-windows-98-in-modern-motherboards-using-more-than-1-gb/ The real problem was that it froze on the first detecting new hardware phase, the setup itself even suggest that the user powers off the computer if not responsive! After powering back on it surprisingly when past the new hardware phase and even finshed the non-plug play detection. But after the third boot it would would just freeze on the startup screen for like 10 minutes to only pop-up a BSOD claiming: "Disk Write Error: Unable to write to disk in drive C:" I assume this has to do with some other known limitation to windows 98 like no native SATA drivers, or large volumes in FAT32 but I'm not sure!
