HOW TO INSTALL THE WINDOWS 98 UPGRADE
ON A NEW HARD DISK DRIVE
Last updated: 07/29/03
article will show you how to install the Windows 98 Upgrade on a new hard
disk without having to first install and then upgrade an older version of
Windows. The procedure can also be used to install the full OEM (original
equipment manufacturer) version of Windows 98, the version of Windows that
usually ships with a new computer, on a new hard disk without the computer
manufacturer's preinstall or emergency recovery disk.
You own an older version of Windows and
you want to "clean-install" windows 98 on a new computer/hard
disk using the Windows 98 upgrade. That is, install Windows 98
with the upgrade without actually upgrading an older version.
You want to install a new hard disk with
FAT32 and partitions greater than the MS-DOS FAT16 two GByte limit, copy
Windows 3.x to it, and then upgrade it.
