I have an ACER Aspire 5100. The original OS was XP home but this as been wiped.
I have an authentic Win 98 disk and a XP pro upgrade disk from Microsoft.
I can successfully load win 98 but with limited support as the Aspire 5100 was built with XP and Vista in mind. Every time I try and install the XP pro update, it freezes after first reboot and sits stuck on “starting windows"
I have the disk with all the Drivers on but cannot load this in Win 98 as the wrong OS keeps popping up. I’ve tried turning off power management in Win 98 but still no luck.
Any help will be well appreciated.
