a friend has a compaq presario laptop with 95 on it. she wants me to put on 98se. she doesn't have any boot disks or restore disks that apparently came with it. i've downloaded the ultimate boot disk of web but can someone give me step by step details on format and install. also, she has eg no modem driver disks - will ultimate boot disk install all drivers she needs?
pookie You just pop the 98 disk into the cd-rom drive and follow the install instructions,this will install 98 over 95 with no loss of existing data. I think at one point in the installation you will be given the choice to save your exsisting setup if you choose to do this it means you can uninstall 98 and return to 95 without having to format.
Just a thought pookie, The edition of 98se you have needs to be a full 98se and not the 98se upgrade. If it is only the 98se upgrade disk then you may need to install win98 first and then upgrade to 98se.
as an update - i had to format and install as it wouldn't let me upgrade over 95. it seems to have worked ok so far. resolution won't go above default and there is no sound or modem but there are driver downloads on hp/compaq site and on driversearch site so i should be ok. if i'm stuck i'll post back
