While you have it plugged into another PC, might as well dump the installers for all the programs you want and the drivers as well. You need neither a partition nor a floppy disk to access the BIOS as it is stored in a flash chip on the motherboard Tue May 10, 6: No need to mess round modifying CD images!

It creates a folder on your system and dps just run setup from there after installation. Didn’t know Compaq laptops had the same problems The link I have provided below is for Windows 3. Last edited by oeuvre on Online though, I have found a set of drivers that have been verified to work with another laptop I tried the drive on, so I’m sure it would work on this.

Previous topic Next topic. Sorry for the late reply! I would suggest modifying the contents of the image in-situ using WinImage, or even by mounting it in Dosbox and modifying the files on it through Dosbox. Discussion about old PC hardware.
That doesn’t make sense. Retrobuilder since WFW3. No matter what I’ve tried or how many searches I’ve been through to try get it working I can’t seem to figure it out!

Sun May 15, What went wrong with the CD? For some reason it only seems to boot onto it from the machine I installed it from. Any ideas how I can fix the MBR manually to work with the laptop?
Press any key to restart’ each time I try to boot from it. I stuck an image on a hard-drive with Windows 98 pre-installed onto it and it all seemed to work great saving me lots of time in the long run – until finally figuring out lots of linkages stopped working and lots of things were erroring out driver conflict, memory issues, etc.
SYS is using ‘CE00’ as shown on the driver link above.
But as long as any CD can boot and leaves you at a dos prompt, you can then remove that CD, insert the Win98 Cd and type setup, away you go! Return to General Old Hardware.
OTOH you could look into the config. Some related file I found suggests it’s a possible issue with the emm memory value. I believe the first bootable partition is offset from where the bios partition is placed, which is why using a standard DOS diskette to create partitions is confusing your Compaq. What about using Rufus? Unfortunately without a working floppy drive this only makes it twice as difficult to complete. Make sure you set the translation or “large disk access” parameter in your BIOS correctly i.
Thanks a lot sdfox7!

Otherwise, you cd15 still at least format the C drive and make it bootable. Then just make a boot disk for Windows 98 with the right drivers and off you go! Tue May 10, I assume that laptop has a USB 1. After 98 Ccd51 Setup completed, it was just a matter of going driver hunting – but the single USB port worked out of the box, so that made it a lot easier.
