Incorporation of Intel chipset driver into Win-98 pre-install?

Recommended Posts

Most of the Intel chipset readme files mentions the ability to incorporate newer INF files into the "setup" directory of a win-98 OEM preload kit as a way to aid in installing 98 on motherboards with newer hardware.

I have an OEM win-98se install CD, and there is no such "setup" directory. Instead, I see many hardware inf files in the "win98" directory of the CD.

There seems to be very little on-line with regard to this "windows 98se oem preload kit" distribution CD. Does anyone here have any knowledge of it - or how to "build" one from a regular 98 OEM cd? Would this preload kit come as part of the MSDN library (which I have) ?

Here are the relavent instructions from the Intel readme file. Again, if anyone knows how to accomplish this with a regular win-98se oem install disk, then please post. Again, I'm trying to see if there's a way to "roll-in" the Intel chipset driver Version: 6.3.0.1008 files into win-98 before starting the install.

* 8A. INSTALLING THE WINDOWS* 98SE/WINDOWS* ME

* INF FILES PRIOR TO OS INSTALLATION

************************************************************

NOTE: The Windows* 98SE or Windows* Me OEM Preload Kit

distribution CD contains a setup directory with all the

base operating system setup files (*.CAB) and the

installation program (SETUP.EXE).

The name of the directory may vary depending on the

distribution CD (e.g., \WIN98SE\).

1. If you are preloading Windows* 98SE, copy the

Windows* 98SE INF files from

<INF Extract Directory>\XXXX\Win98SE to the

setup directory.

-or-

If you are preloading Windows* Me, copy the

Windows* Me INF files from

<INF Extract Directory>\XXXX\WinMe to the

setup directory.

NOTE: XXXX is the directory name for the chipset of

interest. Refer to Section 8 for more details.

2. Run SETUP.EXE to install Windows* 98SE or Windows* Me.

"setup" directory = "win98" directory
