I installed Win98 from the HDD last night, but it was even more buggy and wouldn’t finish the installation until a booted in safe mode and installed Intel inf in between restarts and after that it kind of finished the installation, but it’s extremly unstable now and won’t start every time.
In theory the above setup should work since everything has official Win98 drivers. Oh and always install DX before installing the video card and sound card driver. In general Windows seems a bit flimsy, when installing drivers and DX8.

What sound card are you using? I already have the most powerful WinXP machine possible. It has to be under GB ideally. The problem with Win98 on a more modern motherboard is the lack of IRQ’s vs Winxp, 15 against 23 or The first problem is that the IDE-controllers doesn’t get installed correctly, it does seem to find the drivers from Intel, but they remain with a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager and my DVD drive is not discovered.
Fourth problem is the 3D performance, it seems very low. Go for an older nvidia driver as well. Enhanced mode will not work with Win9x. Return to General Old Hardware.
The later Nvidia Win98 drivers give terrible awrock in games, they didn’t care about optimisation at that point. First of all I would suggest going into the bios and turning off anything that You are not using, com ports, parallel port, onboard sound, Network, etc. The idea was to create the most powerful Win98se machine possible, without doing “hacks”. And a couple of times scandisk started after installing something and “reset” Windows icons, 775i65ggv programs.

Users browsing this forum: There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. I installed Windows from the DVD drive, and it was in the end, after the second to last restart, the drive “disappeared” and the installation program ask for a bunch of files it couldn’t find on the CD.
The next problem is that the driver installation program from Creative does not find my sound card. This site hosts no sara. I ran 3DMark2k1 and got just over 20k, when I should be getting around 30k and over.

I will try to find older drivers for graphics card and sound card. Try a standard platter drive. Go for the oldest drivers you can find – for everything. D and F seem mirrors of each other.
Need to find asrock 775i65gv SATA drivers
I’d also get rid of the SSD. Make sure you install the intel asfock driver first, then the sata driver. I don’t really understand why, because Windows finds it and are asking for drivers. Here it is anyway. These should normally be disabled on old machines for compatibility with ISA and legacy devices, but your machine requires them to be on to work correctly.
