HI !

My name is caron and I live in Rodrigues Island ( Indian Ocean ).
I am trying since 1 month to install Win98 SE as guest on Ubuntu12.10 then I gave up by replacing Ubuntu by Linux Mint 14 !
I tried to recompile my win98 iso that I use in VirtuBox to create a virtual machine : i always get the same error " FAULT OUTSIDE THE MS DOS EXTENDER with a great deal of numbers ! :cry: 
Can you please help me : I'm in most dispair situation !

Thanks in advance :wink:

You have to disable all hardware virtualization on the acceleration tab in the VM's system setup. In addition, do not configure more than 512MB RAM or more than 1 processor. You'll also find that Virtualbox no longer provides "Guest Additions" for Windows 98.
