Well, the simplest thing to do is to download a bootable floppy image of Windows 98SE boot disk. Get this file:


then unzip the file (ignore the error - the header is build with EXE to write to physical floppy disk, and we don't need it on Linux).

Then boot QEMU only with this floppy image (with -fda) and -hda <your hard disk image> and use fdisk and format as usual (don't forget: format c:/s). After you'll finish, restart QEMU without this floppy, but with the CDROM image, and boot from the CDROM.

Good Luck,

Hey all, wondering if there are any suggestions for
how to install win98se from a cdrom image.
ive tried
qemu -hda c.img -cdrom win98.iso -m 128 -boot d
and it seems to work well except when asking to install
from the cd, it asks to format the hd, but then says that
i must insert the cdrom before continuing.. strange!
snooping around the mailing list hasnt helped
does anybody have any suggestions? - how did you install your
win98? or where can i look for help?
