I've got my new card (thank you for advice) and bought a Innovision Tornado GeForce4 MX 440 64Mb. One small problem, on the box of the vid card it states that it requires Windows 98 SE. I only have W98 old version on my PC.
Does anyone out there have the same card (GF4 MX440) and run the old version Win 98?
I'm not wanting to spend too much more on this PC as I'm going to get a new one in the next 12 months, so don't want to buy a W98SE upgrade. I've got a full copy of W98SE but can't get it to upgrade my W98. I've posted in the Windows9x forum regarding this. Was just wondering if it will work if I can't get the Win98 issues sorted.
That's to bad. XP is the only OS I know that will upgrade a OS. It's also got a uninstall to go back to the OS you overwrote with XP. Even then I don't recommend doing that. I always do a clean install with an OS. If your not comfortable with it I'd stay away from it as you yourself said. Sorry
Crashman, please could you go into a little bit more detail as to how I would delete the registration files? Do I load into windows, go to windows explorer, take a copy of the win.ini file onto a floppy as a backup and then just delete the win.ini file from the windows directory? Do I just shut the PC down then and reboot with the CD-ROM? How can I check if the CD-ROM will work without windows?
I just answered in the other forum, but actually you can do all of this from Windows: Copy the Win98 directory from the CD to the C: drive and you won't need the CD for setup. Copy the Win.Com to the floppy and you won't need to mess with that later. Then you can boot off the floppy, "c:" to change to the C: drive, "cd windows" to change to c:\windows, and "del win.com" to delete win.com from the windows directory. Then "cd .." to go back to the root directory c:, "cd win98" to move to the folder you made c:\win98 earlier, and "setup" to run setup from that directory. If you get stuck and can't setup, you can get win.com back to the windows directory by typing "copy a:\win.com c:\windows"
