    Where I can get Win 98 FE boot diskette?

  • if the serial key doesn't work then try this:
    K6B23-D6C7K-H8W4H-XHWC8-4V9DB

  • Has anyone had a problem with the retail upgrade cd for Windows 98 First Edition? Because I tried it on multiple virtualization software and it gets stuck at 23% after checking the drives.

  • So my problem got fixed, it was because I had enabled Hyper-V in my Windows 10 Pro computer to turn on at startup.

  • This is the last stop for those who DON'T have a CD-ROM drive; Microsoft let you order Windows 98 on 39 DMF formatted 3.5 inch floppy disks.

    MS left you to order Windows 8.1 on 3000+ diskettes

    Note this is not real. In theory, considering these are 1.44 diskettes, 3711 diskettes is equal to 5.34 GB of space, and Win8.1 is lighter than that.
    And considering the rare case these could be 720 KB diskettes, the total size would be 2.67, and Win8.1 is heavier than that

    I'm going to order the next win10 enterprise LTSC release on 5.25" 360K diskettes from M$. :smiley:

    Back on topic, 98FE was a real dog on my IBM PC 300GL. Before I could even install any drivers, I'd get blue screen after blue screen then lose all responsiveness. Asking for opinions, many thought it was hardware-related (overheating or bad RAM). I changed back to 95/2000 a few hours later and those OSes have been incredibly stable.

    My aunt used it as her main OS for 6 years and surprisingly it had held up well going years without a reinstall (several years' worth of tax software installed) and was very stable.

    Some windows 9x releases like 98/Me are just so picky about hardware configs. 95, 2000 and XP, on the other hand will take anything thrown at it in my (unfortunately limited) experience.

  • @SistemaRayoXP I Say windows 10 would take forever to install from a floppy

  • Which is why Microsoft stopped making Windows on floppy disks after 98(which had 39 disks, and those were DMF formatted!). It would also cost a lot of money to mass produce.

    Well, I have Windows 8 on 1713 floppies:

    JOKE! NOT REAL!

    This key is the only one working for this upgrade. I have tried about 15 other serials and none have worked, except for this one.

    On Google, search for and download "FIX95CPU" .

    When the Windows Protection Error message appears, place the WinImage file in your floppy drive and restart. Follow the onscreen instructions, then remove the floppy and restart again.

    That will do it.
