Unpacking all system files and drivers

Recommended Posts

So I'm having an issue here. Not my first time around trying to get 98se working but this time I need help. I can install it no problem and I have all my drivers lined up. What I've been doing is starting with a blank hdd loading 98 on it and then using gparted to partition it so I can later install xp as a second boot option and I also leave a fat32 partition as an area that both operating systems can see. In that partition I load all my drivers. So back into it I run through the chipset installation software no problem then I do video,audio,nic card. This is where I have problems. It seems that at any step after I do chipset I can be presented with found new hardware at startup and it needs 20 files that it can't find. I have ran thri this without a hiccup as well and later screwed something else up resulting in a re install. I would like to fully unpack all the cab files on the 98 iso and just have them sitting in my fat 32 partition so I can just point to one area every time.

assuming, that dest folder is c:\udir:
go to ur win98 distr folder and run this command

for %i in (*.cab) do extract /e /a /l c:\udir %i
