Windows 98 Image Preparation Tool

Recommended Posts

I have been looking all over the internet for this tool!

 

I have been reading the forum - http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/43253-win98se-image-for-multiple-pcs/ which suggests to download the preptool for windows 98 here - http://download.microsoft.com/download/winntwks40/Utility/4.71.1015.0/NT4/EN-US/WIN_DEPLOY.exe

 

Does anyone know where I can obtain it? If could upload a copy I would be most appreciative!

KB195446 refers to SysPrep for Win NT 4.0. What you want is this, which link I got from the selfsame thread you quoted, but failed to read as fully as you should... dubbio.gif

Hi wonko, nice to see you around still!

I have to apologise to you both, turns out I was using an addon for firefox, called redirect cleaner, which was stripping the links. :blushing:

Will use internet explorer next time!

I'm assuming it's because NT4 had the Win95 Install on one of the Server versions.  :unsure:

Had what? :w00t: 

 

Any doc/detail about this? :unsure:

In folder "x:\CLIENTS\WIN95\NETSETUP" on the RTM Server. SETUP.TXT

 

Microsoft Windows 95 README for Setup

August 1995

I believe it's the "Upgrade" set. CAB's are 2kb.

Other references are from Chinese websites (just search the folder string).

 

I obtained a copy from FCCdotGOV (don't ask any more and I won't tell).

Now I see. :)

 

My bad  :( , I somehow missed the "server" :w00t: in your post :blushing:  .

 

The .cab's are 2 Mb each of course (2048000 bytes) and seemingly the contents are the same as the original Windows 95 iso, the ones with timestamp 1995-07-11 09:50:00:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/MISC1/peropsys/WINDOWS/KB/Q135/5/40.TXT

as the "normal" .iso, in practice you have WIN95_02.CAB to WIN95_17.CAB instead of the WIN95_02.CAB to WIN95_28.CAB that was used for the later OEM2/OSR2 release, the around 1680 Kb cab size:

ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/misc1/PEROPSYS/WINDOWS/KB/Q158/1/90.TXT

derived, if I recall correctly, by the use of the floppy install version that used the non-standard floppy filesystem (the infamous DMF format):
