Hi, I have installed MS virtual pc 2007 & am trying to install win 98 but get this message
"To set up Windows 98, your startup drive must be an MS-DOS startup partition. If your startup drive is formatted as HPFS or NTFS, you must create an MS-DOS startup partition before you run Setup" I have spent ages searching MS K base but not found out how. Remember this is a virtual drive!
Kind regards

Has anyone else used this free microsoft prog (Virtual PC 2007) & setup win 98?

managed to sort it out. Used FDISK & format C: from the cd. All installed & working fine.
This prog is free from MS & will run on XP home (not supported)I am suprised more of you have not tried it out!
Thanks to diversion for attempting to help.
