I ws given an HP Vectra VE8 with Intel Celeron 333 MHz processor. The bios is AMI HT.01.03 dated 1998. It has 160 megs or RAM. The motherboard is First International 440 BX Ver 1.x. It has Windows 95 on it and I was wondering if it would be possible to istall Windows 98 on it. Would it work? It will be used by my granddaughter but I don't want to mess it up with Windows 98 before I check withyou guys. Thanks for your help.
Q: How many Microsoft tech support people does it take to change a light bulb?
One to ask "What is the registration number of the light bulb?"
One to ask "Have you tried rebooting it?"
Another to ask "Have you tried reinstalling it?"
And the last one to say "It must be your hardware because the light bulb in our office works fine..."
Thanks, Craigery. Are these the requirements for the system configuration to use Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1) only? I didn't find any reference to Windows 98 at the site you referenced. Thanks for your help.
I would advise a fresh install as you then have a clean reg, some what of a non fragmented hard drive and a Fat32 disk. I just like a clean install of an OS for the piece of mind there will be nothing left over from a prior install to cause any issues.
If you ask for help from the forum, PLEASE take the time to let us know the results so we can all learn.
My system specs...
THE ES - 5,120 (640 8-way nodes) 500 MHz NEC CPUs. 8 GFLOPS per CPU (41 TFLOPS total). 2 GB (4 512 MB FPLRAM modules) per CPU (10 TB total) shared memory inside the node. 640 × 640 crossbar switch between the nodes with 16 GB/s inter-node bandwidth, using 20 kVA power consumption per node
The machine runs a version of the Super-UX UNIX-based OS. You mean it's not running Windows???
I was going to just upgrade but I tried it just now and I get a message saying I can't upgrade with this version of Windows 98. It's a legal version that I have. The Windows 95 that's on it now was run a a network, so I was wondering if that makes any difference.
