You'd be better off running 98 in a virtual machine rather than trying to actually boot it on that system. rapiddecline November 27, 2009 8:09:05 PM Zoron said:Didn't Windows 98 have a problem running on anything more than 512MB of RAM?

Strange as it may seem, Original 1GB Ram, dual boot Win98 installed clean and ran, without any hitches. I had forgotten about a virtual machine, but with the added 1 Gb ram will explore that avenue.
