I already have a Windows 7 installation, and I'm trying to set up a Windows 98 next to it. Yes, I know, I did it backwards. However, I didn't know a bunch of my old games wouldn't work in Windows 7, so I've had my OS set up for about a month now. I'm really quite averse to wiping and starting all over again.
So I installed Win98 on a VHD and got it set up the way I wanted. Then I attached the VHD using Disk Management and copied the files onto a new partition that I'd set up for it. I run the proper bcdedit commands to create a second entry.
Only problem is, I try to boot and it tells me there's no bootsect.dos in the partition. I check, and it's right, there isn't. There isn't even one in the VHD that failed to copy. I've done some googling, but haven't found a good way to create a bootsect.com
I have no CDs to burn. I DO, however, have a USB key that can boot into DOS. Or boot into anything, I guess, but DOS is what's set up right now.
