How do you know it works well?diskette working well it might be bios settings failure?
I mean, you said it didn't work, which was the whole premise of the thread.thanks for suggestions but i would like to use floppy disk to boot, trying to change bios settings, maybe it works
CD boot wasn't a common thing back then, many systems need to boot from floppy.If you have access to a PC which has a CD writer, you can create a Windows 98 Boot CD from an ISO file instead of using a floppy.
Get the ISO file here: https://www.allbootdisks.com/download/iso.html
If you've never created a bootable CD from an ISO before, follow this walkthrough: https://www.allbootdisks.com/cd_creation.html
I'm trying to remember the computer I had in 1998. I think my Pentium 133 was my last PC that had a floppy drive, and I'm kinda sure that the Pentium III 650 I put together in 1999, I installed Windows 98 on from CD from boot. But it's been more than 20 years! My oldest PC still in service is a Pentium 4 from 2004.CD boot wasn't a common thing back then, many systems need to boot from floppy.
If you can connect your hdd to a modern machine you can just run a VM, mount the whole disk to it and do the first stage of the win 98 install that way, it only prepares the drive and copies the setup files over so it doesn't do any system specific stuff that would cause issues, after the copying is done the windows installation will ask you to reboot, just shut off the VM at that point put the hdd into the old system and it will do the drivers and initial setup for the specific hardware.Here is the simplest method I've found for installing 98, but it does require that you can connect the drive you plan to use to a modern machine.
