Just try them all, chances are you can get it to boot with one. I stuck an image on a hard-drive with Windows 98 pre-installed onto it and it all seemed to work great saving me lots of time in the long run – until finally figuring out lots of linkages stopped working and lots of things were erroring out driver conflict, memory issues, etc. These are the working drivers: Last edited by Zuon on Retrobuilder since WFW3.

Thanks so much for taking your time to read this.

cv51 Online though, I have found a set of drivers that have been verified to work with another laptop I tried the drive on, so I’m sure it would work on this. It creates a folder on your system and you just run setup from there after installation.

It may be that the Setup diskette will check that you have the correct model and refuse to work, in which case it may need patching but that is beyond my capabilities. I have a couple of LTE Elites and both have dead diskette drives: OTOH you could look into the config. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. I assume that laptop has a USB 1. Compaq still has the drivers for this machine on their website, it’s under “Software – System Management”.


Didn’t know Compaq laptops had the same problems I legitimately own this copy of Windows 98, as well as the activation key.

It’s probably easy to find Windows drivers for it. We’re talking about the Compaq LTE, right?

So I’m going to have to start clean. Otherwise, you can still at least format the C drive and make it bootable. Then, take out the hdd and put it in another computer another laptop that can see the cd drive, an usb dock connected to a modern ros, or whatevercopy the “win98” directory to the hdd.

That doesn’t make sense. Cos partition table is stored on the harddisk and your PC created a different incompatible one than your laptop expects Terrum wrote: Tue May 10, 6: No need to mess round modifying CD images!

I believe the first bootable partition is offset from where the bios partition is placed, which is why using a standard DOS diskette to create partitions is confusing your Compaq. Sun May 15, You do not need to install the bios settings functions ori its hidden partition as the settings will work from a booted Setup diskette.

Cs51 going all the way is just a start Then just make a boot disk for Windows 98 with the right drivers and off you go!
