If the Win98 computer runs, but only for ten seconds, I would guess it is
overheating. The CPU fan may not be turning.
I guess I wasn't very clear on this, I actually managed to boot the drive into Win98 on the Win7 laptop, and that worked for about 10ish seconds. Wasn't an overheating problem, but I'm sure rather just a compatibility problem.
It was then that I was stuck at the boot menu/blank screen, and I am unable to boot to the desktop again (All on the Win7 laptop). Sorry about the confusion. The Win98 tower is completely inoperable at this time.
It's just frustrating how I know the files SHOULD be there, but I am unable to find them. I know I'm looking in the right directories, but I'm almost wondering if the personal files created on the Win98 computer wouldn't show up when viewing the drive via the dock because of compatibility reasons?
