Solved VirtualBox windows 98 installation

October 10, 2013 at 09:58:45
Specs: Windows 7
I am using VirtualBox to install Windows98 on my Windows 7 machine. However my monitor driver does not work with anything before Windows XP which means I all I seem to have available is the inbuilt generic 16-colour W98 video driver. Are any more advanced W98 generic drivers (with 256 colours) available?

VirtualBox doesn't really support Windows 98, but you might like to read https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewt...

Many thanks, ijack, for a very helpful reply indeed. Having read the document you referred to, all has become clear. A pity Virtualbox did not make it clear from the start as it would have saved me a lot of time and frustration. As a result I have decided not to proceed any further, as the possibility of success looks problematical to say the least. Thanks again.
