Everyone has their own way of installing Win9x. It’s personal. I do not intend to be complete, but an exhaustive guide for this. This is of course not a guide. It’s just an option that I like to do. Almost everything in my talk is optional. Heck, the simple things you really need to get Win98SE working is that you can install it on yourself and on your device. Otherwise, it all depends on your personal preferences.
I’ve been wanting to l post this skill here on VOGONS. I welcome constructive criticism and hope it inspires me to post my own anticipated ways to make things work. I also hope this will most likely help other people who haven’t evolved and grown old in this hobby, even though I did. We have much more than a few members who are learning something for the first time; They had no advantage in being there when new details came out.
Can BIOS settings be changed from Windows?
Windows 10 cannot change or modify BIOS system settings. The BIOS settings can only be updated using firmware updates and running the BIOS update utility provided by the manufacturer of the entire PC.
This is the first report on how I usually set up personal Win98SE systems. I usually install more software than this, but I consider it the backbone of my systems. Please keep in mind that I don’t use more than 512MB of RAM. Benchmarking 3DMark2001SE was a little lower when I used 768MB of RAM. Others have also reported issues after running over 512MB. I prefer not to cause problems, but now I use from 256 MB to 512 MB. These instructions assume that even customers are using between 256MB and 512MB of RAM. If you are using more or less RAM, you can adjustth system.ini file in a different way.
Over the years, my method of installing Win98SE has changed as I have gained more knowledge and experience. So this post will change over time as I add new and better tips and tricks from others. I will accept people when it happens.
Basic general installation instructions for Win98SE
NOTE. Do not purchase the upgraded version of Win98SE. Make sure you are running a good full version of Windows 1997 Second Edition without updates. (Thanks to yawetaG Giorfo.)
If your BIOS has an option to disable ACPI, a person should disable it. On many systems, it may be called “APIC”, “IPCA”, or a specific program if you prefer. Also set the BIOS capability for “Plug n Play OS” to “NO” if you don’t have a PCI sound card. If you have a PCI sound card, set the “Plug Play OS” BIOS setting to “YES”.
This is a practical recommendation. With Win2K, ACPI becomes much more stable and standardized. In Win98SE, ACPI was extremely unreliable and could cause issues such as hang on restart/player crash
Create and formatThere is one primary and active FAT32 partition.
There are many other ways to partition an entire hard drive. You can make it easier to share and create sections that can be downloaded multiple times. For ease of use and consistency in this guide, I’m assuming we’re only using one primary active partition. Feel free to separate the theme and your main system as you see fit and translate my instructions accordingly.
