Create a fake eligibility disk as proof for windows upgrade versions:
THANKS TO EDWARD O'DANIEL:
Should you need to do this in the future you can simply create a file in notepad and name it WIN.CNF and copy it to a floppy (file size and content is not important). When the installation asks for proof put that floppy in the drive and you are off and running.
Make sure there is no additional extension of .txt on the end of the file name since Notepad will try to create that.
Here this one comes again. I'm running WMe but want to get back to 98. I have the 98SE Upgrade edition, but am not in possession of 95 or Win 3x. Reformat, copy 98SE to HD, reboot and, then, I understand I need to rename a file that is copied. May someone please assist me here so I don't bang my head any more. Thanks very much! Ron
