Windows 98 discs do not need to be activated, and yes, they can still be used to upgrade an older installation of Windows.
Put the Windows 98 disk in the CD drive and reboot the computer. This should take you through the steps necessary to install 98.
ME is an upgrade of 98. XP is an upgrade of ME
You must have an installation disc to upgrade Windows 98.
To upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows XP, you need a computer that meets the system requirements for Windows XP and a retail or upgrade CD of Windows XP.
If you have a Microsoft Windows 98 Upgrade CD, you simply put it inside the CD Rom drive and it should launch and proceed to do the upgrade. If you have a Windows 98 Full Installation CD, after it starts running answer to 'upgrade' in stead of a full Windows 98 installation. This will keep all your Windows 95 programms and settings. I hope this help
Purchase Windows XP
No, you shouldn't need a drivers disk besides the Windows 98 disk. It is however always better to do a fresh clean install rather than an upgrade as this just "overlays" your Windows 95 and there have been some problems with the upgrades. If the system asks you for a certain driver, you can alway go to Microsoft and download the needed driver for free.
No. Upgrades are only supported from Windows XP. You would need to do a clean install to upgrade from 98, ME, or 2000.
Windows 95 to Windows 98, and then to Windows XP
Windows 98 OR Windows ME
The purpose of EBD.CAB is to make a Windows 98 boot disk on a floppy.
If you have the discs, yes
I think you need to buy Windows 98. I do not think there is an upgrade available. I am also not even sure if it is possible to buy Win 98 anymore. It may no longer be available.
You would need to install Windows XP seperately. I don't believe that there is anyway to upgrade. You can buy a Windows XP disk at basically any store such as Wal-Mart or you can check out some website online. But you can go from Windows 98 to XP just make sure that your computer can handle the more advanced System Requirements.
win 98 is a client whereas win NT is a server..
Nothing. If it works at all, it will tell you it can't upgrade from Windows 98.
I tried it once but it failed to copy some os files.You should try it ,it may work for you if not upgrade to windows 2000 first. After you upgrade to windows 2000 then you can probably upgrade to windows xp from 2000
That depends on the type of "upgrade" you are referring to. Windows 98 can be upgraded to Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP by inserting the CD while Windows is running and running the setup program. Updates to Windows 98 can be downloaded via Windows Update, though no new updates have been or will be released since 2006.
yes, you can use DVDs on Windows 98, hence why the install disk is on a CD
No. Legally, you must either purchase an upgrade disc, or a full retail copy of XP.
Yes, it is possible to upgrade from Windows 98 to Windows XP. IF your hardware is good enough. Source: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941
