herbalist Posted December 29, 2009 Author Share Posted December 29, 2009 My main reason for wanting both OS on one partition was the lack of hard drive space and the lack of expandability of this hardware. I was going to make the system partition as small as possible in order to make room for a decent size data partition. I've managed to get the XP system well under 2GB so I will have more hard drive space than I initially thought. This thing is becoming one annoying piece of hardware. What looks like a speaker jack is actually a line output. It has no speaker jack. I either have to install another sound card or use amplified speakers. The only sound cards that I have left are combination modem/sound units from HP units that use proprietary drivers. I have drivers but they're a nightmare to make work on non-HP hardware. I'm trying to install 98SE again. My old 98CD is so battered up that the installer couldn't extract cab-64. I'll find out soon enough if the disk I just assembled going to work better. On the last attempt, I had trouble with the display drivers and free memory space. This time, I'll pull out one of the RAM sticks first in case having 1024MB of RAM is causing the problem. On the last attempt, it showed 3 memory ranges that conflicted. One of them couldn't be reassigned on either device. Will try again. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
