can you use your windows xp operating system disk to upgrade a windows 98.
you cant 'upgrade' windows as such, you would have to format the computer and take win98 off, then you could put XP on.
if upgrading from win98 to xp than you can use xp cd from win98 desktop as xp cd will autorun. will give you the option to upgrade or fresh install of xp
iv learned something then, lol iv been formating all the time
teach & learn
How do you format the 98?
Anytime that you update an OS, or reinstall an OS, reformatting the OS partition is the BEST way to do it.
to format your hd for win98, use the win98 bootdisk that you can make in the add/remove/bootdisk section in control panel
if you are have a winxp disc use that to format erase! then install
yes format is best, nice and clean start to the world, like a new born baby!
