          Why emulate when you can run natively with less lag on the same machine? It’s not a good game but Super Puzzle Fighter’s PC version bombed in XP but worked in 9x in recent memory. It’s just not 100% compatible. You want both 98 and XP installed.

        I tried to install ’98 on one of my early’ 00 laptops last weekend and it was a massive pain. Just finding drivers for everything was quite a task. I even had to locate drivers for my USB stick and burn them to a CD and install them that way just to use that USB stick. Even after all the drivers were installed, the system still wasn’t working quite right for some reason. I might try again in the future on an older system.

          What laptop? I have a few 98 laptops that I use for different games. I can help.

              Should have everything you need. You’re using a legit bootleg 98SE and not some unofficial service pack third edition bullshit release right?

                I don’t remember. I may have use some unofficial bullshit thinking it would make the process easier. When I try again I’ll use an official copy of 98SE. Right now the R31 is running XP and has some old educational games my 6yo daughter plays. I also picked up a T40 recently. Once I get the T40 running with XP (hopefully by this weekend) I’ll transfer her games over and then give 98SE another shot on the R31. There are a few 3.1/95/98 games I haven’t been able to run on XP that I want 98 for.

                  Look for T42, 15" flexview IPS 1440×1050. With Pentium M 755 2GHz, 2 gigs of DDR, mSata SSD in a IDE-msata convertor and Radeon 9600m it’s a beast of a retro gaming laptop. It also runs Win98, WinXP and Win7 perfectly, and AT THE SAME TIME with a triple boot setup.

                  Also there is a T42p, with FireGL T2 128mb instead of Radeon 9600m 64mb. In 15" version it has a 1600×1200 IPS screen, but it’s kinda slow for fast games. Still it’s a beast. 14" version has a 1440×1050 TN panel which is fine for games. And it’s 30% smaller than 15" model.

                    I actually have 2 T40 laptops. One is in beautiful condition but is bios locked and so far I’ve been unable to unlock it. I’m wondering if I can easily swap a T42 mobo into it.

                    Anyone know of a good laptop that’s relatively cheap that I can toss XP and my old, disc-based games on? Was looking at the Thinkpad T42 as of suggestion, but they want quite a bit for one on ebay. My only XP running laptops are 16mb and 32mb GPUs with next to no ram only, unfortunately.

          ’ems the breaks if you wanna hardware fag in PCland. I got a good 98/XP dual boot going and I dread when/if I need to redo the installs, partitioning, drivers, etc. I have a backup but I bet it’ll fuck up on me too.

          98 doesn’t have USB mass storage drivers, hence the need to download 3rd party drivers. This is what using old computers is like.

          The nice thing is, once its done you just burn everything on a disk to make it easier on yourself next time.

          Once you get everything packaged and saved, then burn and save it to make it easy on yourself in case you have to do it again.

        Probably. Microsoft basically locked themselves out with this so they probably won’t drill down on people as a result.

        I got it running on a Xeon platform from 2007 so it ain’t a hardware thing at all. It’s just about TPM and Secure Boot but because they tied those attributes to certain CPU generations, even if you enable them on an "incompatible" CPU you can’t install it (like my 7700K).

        I’ll figure it out, whatever, they can’t stop me…

          It’s pretty retarded. I just know that garbage ‘new’ laptops with half as much power as your 7700k or my 2600 will work with no questions asked lol.

      Nope. If you’re looking for classic you need Windows 98 SE. Maybe use KernelEx to run a few more games on there.

        7 is not that far removed from XP. Weird. Hard to believe either a compatibility mode/turning off Aero or a certain driver wouldn’t do it. Shrug.

          From a technical perspective, you might be right, I wouldn’t know. From a user perspective, I think a lot of us give Win 7 more credit than it deserves. Vista was such a dumpster fire compared to XP, that when 7 came around, it looked good compared to Vista. I think this is why my own memories of 7 were rather fond, but after going back to XP recently I’ve realized that XP was even better than I had remembered and 7 seems pretty shitty in comparison.

            7 runs newer and more applications than XP while breaking hardly anything once you throw Aero out. The only reasons to use XP in favor of 7 are performance on CPU cycle and RAM starved builds and proper soundcard acceleration. 8 and beyond’s compatibility issues lie in forced DWM and slowly marching away from legacy DirectX support and mark the real rot.
