Post back your cpu speed, ram amount and hard drive size.

At that c:\> prompt type dir c:\windows\system\vmm32.vxd and enter. What response do you get?

Try changing the boot order (one of those 'it shouldn't work' solutions):

The 'file not found' when you did the DIR means that file isn't there so the changing the boot order thing wasn't going to work anyway.

Try another reinstall. Was it an over-the-top reinstall or did you format and do a fresh install?

did a fresh install but i do not know if the windows 98 file is the correct one for the pc if not will that cause problems?
i do have 2 restore cds that i am sure is for this pc but could not get them to run...cd is on top of the boot order in bios
i installed the window98 from a file not a cd...i have the same file saved on my xp computer..so i can put it on a cd and try again

Vmm32.vxd? That file is built during the initial installation so it will be OK if the install went OK.

The files necessary for a 98 install are in the WIN98 folder on the cd. It shoiuld have about 100 files in it. I imagine that's what you used as I can't think of any way to install it from a single file unless someone went to a lot of trouble to build it that way.

Well, they could be zipped into one file but you'd have to unzip it before doing the install.

i unzipped all files and as i turned on computer installed the disc..
got message that harddrive not found...hit any key to continue...next message says operating system not found..so thinking i have a problem with the cd drive i tried to load windows on a floppy but is to not enough memory..should i try a cd cleaner or should i open cpu up and unplug and replug cd back in or what would you suggest

I don't know what you've got going there. The 'harddrive not found press any key to continiue' is probably coming from the bios. You can open up the case and check the connections or maybe the drive just died. It sounds like you unzipped everything to the hard drive so it must have been OK when you did that.

You can't 'load windows from a floppy'. You can start the install with a floppy bootdisk but you need the cd or the install files copied to the hard drive in order to coninue.

The memory error may be due to it not finding the hard drive. I really can't tell, but you need to figure out what's up with the hard drive first before you can continue with the install.

You should reformat the drive. Boot up with a bootdisk. Choose cdrom support. Watch the screen and it should tell you what drive letter is assigned to the cdrom because it may not be the same as when windows is up and running. Then at the a:\> prompt type format c: and enter. When it's done, and with the 98 cd in the cdrom, type X:\setup and enter, where X: is the cdrom drive letter indicated when you booted up with the bootdisk.

Now, you've got a weird 98 disk so setup may be in a directory on the cd and not in the root directory. If it's in a directory named (for example) WIN98 you'd type X:\win98\setup and enter.

If you can't find it, put the cd in a different working computer and browse the disk untl you find it. Post back the info on where you have it if you can't figure out how to get it started.

There will be about 100 files used to install 98 on the cd. Of those 55 (on my cd) are of the form WIN98_xx.CAB where xx are numbers. If your folder has those then likely it has all the files.

I haven't sent the bootdisk file yet but will shortly.

Just sent the bootdisk file. Extract with something like winzip and run the extracted file. Then boot up with it and format and install from cd as I mentioned in # 13 above.

The bootdisk I sent doesn't alter the cdrom drive letter so it should be the same as when you previously had 98 installed on it.

All the 98 installation files on the cd need to be in the same folder. A regular 98 cd has 5 folders but only the WIN98 folder is necessary to install 98. I assume that's what you have.

This shouldn't be so difficult.
1st of all, the boot order should be:

1. floppy
3. HDD

2nd, you need a Win98 boot floppy. You can download a file to create a boot floppy from here:


NOTE: just download it, double click on it & follow the instructions.

3rd, you need to prepare the HDD.
- boot off the floppy & select "without CD support"
- at the A:\> prompt, type format c: & press Enter.

4th, when formating is complete, reboot & this time select "with CD support". Just before the A:\> prompt comes up, the screen will display the drive letter assigned to the CD drive...it will probably be R

5th, pop the Win98 CD in the drive. At the A:\>, type R: & press Enter. Then at the R:\> prompt, type setup & press Enter. Win98 installation will begin.....

BTW, make sure the disc is clean.

well it appears to be difficult for me...seems if i get files organized in the correct folder and on the correct cd with the correct drive it will work
here is were i am-

OK I sucessfully formated

then ( I left floppy in and installed the cd I had created from a file )

at A:\>
I entered a:\win98\setup and enter
and got message- Bad command or file name
and then decided to try other letters-

at A prompt I tried A,a,E, e, F,f,G,g, r,R and got the same
at G I got message " Not ready reading drive G Abort,Retry,Fail?

I select enter and I am back to the A prompt

Should i send you a list of all the file names? So maybe you can tell me what files should be were?

This is what I put on a cd-

win98_21 through win98_74..
then there is a win98_0L
then xmsmmgr

there is a file called setup in a seperate folder..don't know what to do with it...i put it on the cd but no change

i also tried to unzip everything....tried to write to cd and file is to big to write all

Sorry but I am really lost

can you email me the correct file to install?

TOUR and OLS are separate directories and aren't needed. The actual number of files may vary between OEM and retail disks and between 98 first edition and second edition.

You don't use A:\WIN98\SETUP to start the setup because A: is not the cdrom drive letter, it's the floppy drive letter. And you only use WIN98\SETUP if the files are in a directory named WIN98. If you're just copying them to a cd and not copying a directory containing the files then you'd just type D:\setup and enter, where D: is the cdrom drive letter indicated when you booted up. If you use my floppy disk and you have one partition on the drive and one cdrom then D: will be the correct letter.

Are you using the bootdisk I sent? I doubt it unless you have 5 IDE drives connected, which I'm sure you don't.

"at A:\>
I entered a:\win98\setup and enter"

Of course that won't work. You're not installing from the A: drive, you're installing from the CD-ROM drive. You didn't follow the instructions that I spelled out for you.

1st of all, do you have a Win98 CD or not?

2nd, when you boot off the floppy, you need to select "with CD-ROM support" & then watch the screen for the drive letter assigned to the CD drive. Like I said, it will probably be R. If it's not, use whichever letter is displayed.

3. You can't run the installation for the A: drive, you have to change to R:, then run setup from the CD. Here's what you'd have to do:

At the A:\> prompt, type R: & press enter, like so:

A:\>R: [enter]

That will change the prompt to the R drive & will the look like this:


Then at the R:\> prompt (with the Win98 disc in the CD drive) type setup, then press enter...like so:

R:\>setup [enter]

They're probably not zipped. If they are they'll have a .zip extension and will need to be unzipped. They should have the extensions as in the list in # 24.

You have all those files in one folder on a burned cd? Then follow my instructions from # 13. As I mentioned in # 24 the cdrom drive letter is probably D: but watch the screen as the bootdisk loads. The last few lines shoiuld tell you what the drive letter is.

After it formats and you're back at the a:\> prompt you type the
D:\WIN98\SETUP. Or, if the files aren't in a folder named WIN98, replace WIN98 with whatever the folder name is that contains the installation files. And again if the drive letter isn't D: then replace D: with whatever the actual letter is.

So if, for example, you put them in a folder named DAVE and the cdrom drive letter is E: you'd type E:\DAVE\SETUP and enter. You're the only one that knows the folder name and the cdrom drive letter.

That's NOT the disk I sent you. None of my bootdisks set up a ram drive and the one I sent had the aspi drivers REM'd out so they wouldn't load and it used Vide-cdd as the cdrom driver and not oakcdrom.sys.

But, to answer your question, this is where your cdrom drive letters are specified:

Copywrite (C) Microsoft Corp 1986-1995

Drive F: = Driver MSCD001 unit 0

Drive G: = Driver MSCD001 unit 1

You have 2 optical drives, one at F: and one at G:. The disk you have will work if it has the format command on it. Of course, the reason I sent the disk file is because the disk you were using apparently didn't have the format command on it (# 14 and # 15 above).

Also note that in # 6 you said you had restore disks you couldn't get to work and in # 23 you got the ' Not ready reading drive G Abort,Retry,Fail?' message when apparently you had the cd with the install files in the the drive.

Y'know maybe your cdrom is bad.

I don't have time to look at this post 'til tonite but yes I used the file you sent me to format and create a boot disc...it is the only one i have been able to get to work....the only thing that I might have did is in all my attempts to get this to work was I remember allowing something to change back to "default" could that have changed your file? should I redo format and boot disc?

i also have a cdrom from a newer compac xp computer that i could try to install..what do you think?

"jam what do you mean by this

" I give up." ????"

It means I'm finished trying to help you. This should just be a simple reinstall of Win98 but you've been stuggling with it for almost 2 weeks. I'm sure DAVEINCAPS will continue helping you but I am done.

I'll leave you with this:


Good luck.

No, it's definitely not my disk. Jam linked to a bootdisk file in # 21. Maybe that's the one you're using.

It doesn't really matter which you use as long as it has the necessary files on it.

The cdrom driver is detecting you have two optical drives--cdrom, burner, or DVD--so try using the cd in the other one to do the install. Try that before swapping in another cdrom.

I'm sorry jam....i thought it was DAVEINCAPS posting ...I missed your name in the top corner of the post...I also did not see post #26...and I copied your file thinking it was from DAVEINCAPS as he said he is sending me the file...I thought it strange that it was posted when he said he will email it...
OK DAVE IN CAPS you are right it was not your file...but..I just went to my email and got it....I am going to try again...hope you got some patience....jam if you please getting instructions from 2 different peeps makes it difficult for me a newbie rookie to get this done..don't get me wrong I appreciate all the help I am getting and I am not giving up yet....please jump in if you see something i am screwing up...I WILL pay close attention to the person posting from now on

If jam's disk works OK you might as well continue using it.

Looks like both work but look at this

OK Here is what is on the screen when your floppy is in and cd is in the cd drive or dvd drive...both give the same results-
In bios i put floppy on top cd second and c drive last...then I put cd first and floppy second still no change...yes as I changed I saved when I exited.

from what you see here do I have a prob with cd drive or do I have something wrong the way I have the files loaded on the cd or what to do next..I have a cd drive that came off a 4 yr old compac that I know is good if you think that is the prob

Start Windows 98 Setup from CD-ROM

I selected 1 and enter

Then this appears-

IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM Driver version 2.14 10:48;22
CD-ROM drive #0 Found on 1F0h port slave device, vS002
CD-ROM drive #1 found on 170h port master device, va14D

Drive E: = Driver OEMCD001 unit 0
Drive F: = Driver OEMCD001 unit 1

The windows 98 Setup files were not found.

When you choose 'Start windows 98 setup. . .' it checks the cdrom(s) for a disk and if it finds one, looks for SETUP.EXE in a WIN98 folder. So if there's no cd in either of the optical drives or no WIN98 folder or no SETUP.EXE in the WIN98 folder then it gives the error about not finding the files.

You should probably choose 'cdrom support' and then from the a:\> prompt, change to the drive letter of the cdrom that has the cd in it. So if it was in E: type E: and enter. That gives a an E:\> prompt. The type DIR and enter. That gives a directory list of the files and folders in the root directory of the cd. Find the directory that has the installation files in it--say WIN98--and type cd win98 and enter. Now the prompt should show E:\win98>. Type setup and enter. That should start the installation.

But did you format the drive?

Also, do you have the product key to do the install? If not, is there a 'certificate of authenticity' sticker on the computer case with a product key?

OK I got the directory list on the screen..101 files

It scrolls so fast I canot see the the first 60 files....

Should I start at the beginning and do 1 at a time?
And select file 1 or 01? Don't know what it is 'cause it scrolls so fast..

Here is a typical file exactly as it is displayed on the screen-

WIN98_67 CAB

I only see file 57 through 74 but there are 2 files at the bottom that say

You can scroll through the directory entries by using dir/p which will display the files one page at a time. But you don't really need to view the files, olther than to verify you have them. Just type setup and enter from the directory containing the files. As long as SETUP.EXE is one of the files then the installation should start.

thought i would play a April fools joke....but decided it was not a good idea....42 back and forth posts for something that really should be simple...
And would have been if I did not over think like I sometimes do....
If when I unzipped the original file and if I copied those unzipped files to a CD it would have been fixed weeks ago...but no NOT ME!! I see winzip yellow folders and unzip them also....
so yesterday I was already to give up after a couple of more hours changing files in folders that looked like they should have EXE on the end and countless restarting the computer...
So what I did was delete all folders and went back to scratch...
Took the original zipped folder ...unzipped....wrote to CD RW...installed floppy you kindly sent me....installed CD I just wrote....went right to the install.....completed install ...installed key ....and all good to go

DAVEINCAPS I would like to thank your for all your patience as it must be tough to do sometimes..
Also thanks jam for all your efforts
