Part VII: Appendixes > Preparing to Install Windows 98

Preparing to Install Windows 98

Windows 98 performance hinges on the hardware of your computer. The minimum system requirements call for a 486DX processor with at least 4MB of RAM. If you choose to install Windows 98 on a system with these specifications, the following recommendations will speed up installation:

  • Run setup from within Windows 95 or Windows 3.x. Try to avoid running the setup from MS-DOS.

  • Remove any disk compression from your hard drive.

  • If you are installing from floppy disks, extract the floppy disks to your hard drive and run setup from the hard drive instead of the floppy disks.

  • If, during setup, you notice that the busy light is flashing on an empty floppy disk drive, insert a blank formatted disk into the drive.
