    It did take a bit of getting in. ( that's what she said )..

    Don't have any drivers for out before XP.

    Just did it for a laugh really. A guy on another forums asked if anybody could help him with getting a Windows 98 boot floppy.
    I offered and posted a couple out to him. He put a pic up showing his old desktop up and running with Win 98.
    Been years since I saw it and thought I'd have a go with my old LGA 775 with 2gb DDR2 RAM.

    Just about managed to get it installed. Now I feel I may do as suggested and install all of the OS's , we'll try to any way.

    Could be fun.

    Looks like you only installed the vanilla drivers for 480x640 desktop , why not start at some windows 1x or 3x versions that will make your brain work?

    Try with DOSbox, you don't need to get any old computer from the loft:

    Installing Vista would not be a challenge.

    Pretty sure I have some Vista images on disc somewhere.

    Not messed with Vista since it was out. Cant really remember what its like.
