So i downloaded a .ISO of the win98 installation disk that i can mount with Daemon Tools, and i can retrieve the serial key from my old win98 desktop, so i'll have an official version of the OS. My problem is that i have no idea how to go about doing this, or what it entails.
My options are as follows:
1-Install win98 along with Vista on my laptop's hard drive.
2-Install win98 on my external HDD (1Tb).
3-Install win98 on a USB key (8Gb).
I think the USB key would be preferable, seen as i wouldn't have to format anything large.
Another problem is that i don't know if my laptop would support Win98, as it is quite modern.
The specs are as follows:
-OS: Windows Vista 32bit, service pack 1.
-Processor: Pentium DualCore CPU T4200 @ 2.00GHz 2.00GHz
-Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3430
My third problem is that i don't know exactly how double partitioning works. Is there any risk of me losing data or otherwise damaging something? What kinds of problems might i encounter?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
