Hey guys. I was trying to set up an old laptop (Gateway Solo 5300, Pentium III) with Windows 98 SE. However, I have been unable to locate CD-ROM drivers that work with my CD-ROM drive in DOS. The issue with my laptop is, it can only house EITHER a CD-ROM or floppy drive, but not both. So I can't have my boot disk and a CD-ROM in at the same time. My CD-ROM works under Windows XP, but it refuses to work under Windows 95. Since I couldn't use CD-ROM, I installed Windows 95 off of floppy, but it still won't detect my CD-ROM! I try the new hardware wizard, but that won't detect it! Windows 95 does detect my IDE controller, but not the drive itself.
In the boot menu, it is described as an ATAPI CD-ROM drive.
Just to be clear, I installed the Windows 95 RTM floppy disk version downloaded off of this website (not DMF, I downloaded the 1.44MB version).
Does anyone have any idea what to do to get my CD-ROM drive working under Windows 95/98? Will it work under 98 and I just have to install from floppy?
