Using Partition Magic 7.0 I'm trying to install Windows 98 onto a second primary partion. I've created the new partition using the wizard but am having no luck getting the OS onto it.

Basically I do not have an OS installation diskette (floppy?), cannot get access to the BIOS (like on my old machine) to make the CDROM bootable OR despite using PQboot get the new partition to boot using the DOS and Drivers I have loaded onto it.

This situation sucks as I have successfull installed OS onto older machines by formatting from floppy and loading dos + drivers onto the drive and then installing the OS from the CDROM.

Can anyone help???


:confused:

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
