Unattended Windows 98 Install


Recommended Posts

All what I did is:

I copied the '@msbatch.inf' to the Win98 folder then tried to install Windows 98se in Virual Machine (VMware Workstation) using the command line in the autoexec.bat:

path=a:\;%CDROM%\

%CDROM%

cd \WIN98

setup.exe @msbatch.inf

It started copying all neccessary files to the disk. Hereafter, it restarted the computer automatically.

Now it displays the following on Dump screen:

" Cannot read or write to Partition C: press any key to continue "

When I press any key I have this message:

" Cannot load or read KRNL386.exe"

One more question:

How to bypass the scandisk process during installation?

If msbatch.inf is in the same folder of SETUP.EXE, you don't have to mention it on the command line.

This is my command line: SETUP.EXE /ie /is /nf /nm /nr

WIN98SE Setup Options: SETUP [batch] [/ie] [/im] [/is] [/iv] [/nr] [/T:tmpdir]

batch Specifies the name and location of the file that contains the Setup options.

/ie Skip the Startup Disk screen.

/im Skip the check for low conventional memory.

/is Do not run ScanDisk.

/iv Do not display billboards.

/nr Skips the registry check.

/T:tmpdir Specifies the directory where Setup is to copy its temporary files.

This directory must already exist, but any existing files in the directory

will be deleted.

Thank you very much for your nice help.
