Burning windows 98

Hello,

What speed should I chose when burning a bootable windows 98 SE cd-rw disk ?

Or doesn't that matter anyway ?

4X is the usual speed recommend for a bootable CD/DVD. If not available, use the slowest speed offered.

Alright thank you.

Would it be too much of a problem to run it on a 40GB harddrive ?

And if so, are there any patches for it ?

You can run it off a flash drive if you want, a 40 GB drive is more then plenty.

Just so you guys know, I am using a real computer for this, an IBM ThinkPad T-21

I seem to be getting an error when windows 98 SE tries to format C:

'Error detected while formatting primary hard disk partition.'

I am using a HITACHI DK23DA-40F as the hardrive.

Update: I've got it working, formatted C: with ms dos prompt and then the disk passed all windows 98 Scandisk tests, it's installing now.

Does SE have SP1 already installed ?

Well I have a folder with the name 'win98sp1' on a disk.

Online ? maybe for fun.

I have an other problem now anyway, it does not have the correct usb drive, so I will try to send one with infrared, and burn it on a disk if that doesnt work.

Does not have the correct usb drive for what ?

As far as I remember Windows 98 doesn`t have the files for high speed internet, only dialup modem, but don`t quote me.

Let us know how it turns out.

High speed Internet should work if you can get network access. You will want to upgrade to Internet Explorer 6 even if you don't intend to use it. IE is a part of the OS, not just a browser.
