I have an 80 gig HDD partitioned into 4 with XP being the OS on the first partition. I have a program (Pinnicle Studio 10) which only works in Win 98. I have it set up on an old computer I have put together after upgrades etc but I would like it to be in the same box as my main XP computer. I have 2 options, first to install Win 98 onto a partition on the XP HDD or could I simply put the HDD from the other computer with the Win98 installed onto the IDE cable? If I did the latter how would I get into the Win98 OS? Any advice before I start?
sorry guys I obviously have the wrong version but I can asure you it will only work in Win98, I went throught the research and and to the company and got the difinative answer from them company. So do you think I can put this 2nd disk in or could I install 98 on one of the partitions? what do you think?
Put your hd into a HD Caddy. Then fit a second HD into another tray for the caddy and install win 98 on it.To change from XP to 98 switch off. swap the tray over and reboot. keeps different os separate. However I run XP home and Pinnacle studio 10, after all it was designed for xp. I dont think Studio 10 has been out 12 months yet so they are hardly likely to design a new program for an out of date OS like 98.
