Windows 98 Upgrade from Full Version? Tags: Windows 98 Computers Windows Last response: April 18, 2001 4:20 PM in Windows 95/98/ME Share Rallaman April 16, 2001 12:02:40 PM Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade a computer from Win 95 to Win 98 with a full version of Win 98? When I try it says I need the upgrade version, but it seems like this should be able to be bypassed.

Then put in your Win 98 boot disk and CD and restart and the proceed to install Windows. It can get hairy doing this, but usually a clean install is a much better choice than performing an upgrade from another version. Good luck.
