Install and Boot Windows 98 SE on a Flash Drive

I spent just about a month on this. You can run Windows 98 SE on you usb flash drive, but when doing this you have no access to your computers hard drive. You can restart your PC\Laptop to boot onto your hard drive. No worries!! Very Happy (I take no responsibility for any damage that may happen, and I take no responsiblity to what is done with this)

Requirements: 1 USB Flash Drive (Its a little easier if you have 2 of them though >_<) It must be at least 1 GB. An original copy of Windows 98 SE. (I never tested this on the original edition) OKE DOOKIE! LETS GET STARTED! 1) Download win98boot HERE Extract it to a temporary folder like on desktop.
2) Download HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool HERE
3) Install HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and run it
4) Insert your USB Flash Drive
5) Use the Program to format your flash drive into "fat32" and check "create a dos startup disk"
6) Browse and locate the "win98boot" folder.
7) Begin the format process.

Cool Now insert your Windows 98 SE CD.
9) Copy the whole CD to your 2nd flash drive (Unless you only have 1 to begin with, Make a folder called "WIN98SETUP" on your flash drive, and copy the contents to the CD in that folder)
10) The copy process could take time >_<
11) When its done copying restart your PC\Laptop.
12) When it starts to start up go to boot order and choose to boot from your flash drive.
13) A screen saying "WINDOWS 98" will quickly appear and then disappear.
14) Now your on the command prompt, type "D:" (If your the installation is on this Flash Drive then type "cd\WIN98SETUP"
15) Now type "setup /c /it /p a;b" *without quotations.
16) Follow the installation instructions
17) If you get any errors at the start of it just continue like normal, Once you get to driver detect it will prompt you before installing any drivers. Only click "YES" to the drivers you are comfortable with and think that the windows 98 disk has the drivers to. "I have clicked "No" to everything and still have a success.
18) You may get an error about not installing Java, ignore it. Very Happy
19) It should Install normal from here!! Good Luck!!


*Note - Im still working on installing drivers for my Acer Aspire One, no luck so far. Also, you wont have USB support. I know that sounds wierd since your booted off of a USB stick but.....yeah lol

I think it has to do with it not using usb 2.0 drivers. I think its using 1.0 speed which is really slow. Something that helps me is when I disable 'Virtual Memory'.

EDIT: I tried installing usb 2.0 drivers for Windows 98 it goes faster. Also install the unofficial service pack for Windows 98, I notice a big difference now.

Hey, man!

Thanks for the tutorial, but the command "setup /c /it /p a;b" doesn't work here. It says it's a bad command or sth like that...
Is that because of the iso of Windows 98 SE I downloaded?

Thank you very much!

Did you check if your in the same directory as "Setup.exe"?

Otonashi-kun, could you recommend me an ISO of Win 98 for download?

I'm Brazilian, so I used an ISO in Portuguese. Maybe that's why it didn't work for me. I searched the files inside of the ISO and I didn't find any "Setup.exe" file. Wasn't this "Setup.exe" file supposed to be inside the "win98setup" folder, since we changed the directory to "win98setup"?

Thank you again!

Your welcome lol.
There is supposed to be a setup.exe file there. its what starts the setup for any computer. There may be a problem with your .iso. try downloading this one...
Code:

I hope you know how to use bittorrent. =) Also, I'm suggesting this download with the understanding that you own a legal copy of windows 98 SE. Wink (If you cant see the download link, just highlight the code box above this... The link is there, I'm just having issues with the color scheme of the forum :/ )

Of course I can use bittorrent and I have already figured out that the link is in white color too.

I'm no that dumb... lololol...

As soon as the download is finished I'll try it all again.

10 Perhaps a Silly Question on Sat Sep 10, 2011 3:12 pm

Hello:

Perhaps I have completely misunderstood what you were trying to do: Were you trying to install Windows 98 SE from a USB stick (onto an internal HDD) or trying to install Windows 98 SE to a USB stick so that you can run Windows 98 SE by simply booting from that USB stick?

Also, I cannot see where you use the second USB stick that you mention in the instructions!

Thank you for your help.

This tutorial installs win 98 on a flash drive. Meaning you boot win98 from the flash drive itself. And the 2nd flash drive is to store the installation for win98 if your primary flash drive isn't big enough for the Operating System as well as the installation at the same time Wink

(O seu Problema é que o ficheiro Setup.exe no Windows 98 em portugues se chama Config.exe)
The Setup.exe file in Portuguese Win 98 is called Config.exe, that will solve your problem Smile
