Hello, I am trying to install Windows 98 SE onto a partition on my laptop hard drive. I have formatted this partition to be FAT32 and gave the partition an appropriate size. When trying to start the setup, it tells me it can't recognize my cdrom, no drivers detected. What can I do, to fix this? I know, when using virtualbox it recognizes it perfectly fine.
