I am currently attempting to upgrade my windows 98 (build 4.10.1998)which is on my old laptop to windows 98 second edition and I have taken the good advice of several people on this site to download the updates from Microsoft (which took some time) which I have and tried to run setup again for the windows 98 second edition again but the aforemention error messege appears with the dialogue
"Your computer already has an operating system installed, which cannot be upgraded by this version of Setup. You need to obtain the windows 98 upgrade"
Any ideas? All help very welcome.
Thanks

There is an upgrade and a full version of Windows 98SE.

However, there is a way to do it but it will take a little while to find out the instructions.

They're on an e-mail from a couple of years or so back...:-(

Found it:

Get a bootable floppy disc.
Boot from it.

Do the following:

c:
cd \windows
ren win.com win.bak
e: [or whatever drive letter the Win98 disc is in]
cd \win98
setup
