I have two computers, one running windows XP, while the other runs Windows98SE. The latter one has just died. PSU failure, I think. However the machine isn't used enough to justify buying a new PSU. However I need some files on the hard disk in the dead computer. Can I plug in this hard disk into my computer and be able to boot into Windows98? Is this possible without re-installing Windows? How do I add the boot option for windows98 into my boot.ini file, bearing in mind that the setup is on a separate HDD?
The best way to do it is to add your old hard disk to the new computer as a slave and simply copy the files you need across to the new hard dive. You don't need to worry about Win 98. A new PSU is about £20, well worth it to keep the old PC, in my opinion, SheffieldSpy.
