Original Intel 915 GAVL mother board, 2.66 GHz LGA 775 intel processor (506), Transcend DDR400 256MB, Seagate 40 GB SATA HDD, LG combo drive, Philips 107E monitor etc. The installation was done by copying setup files of Win 98 in to the HDD. But on completion of the O/S IDE CD ROM drive stopped functioning. The O/S is still usable but with limitations of standard VGA, no audio and no CD ROM drive.The chipset inf files were installed from HDD but graphics and sound drivers are not accepted by the system though the LAN driver could install successfully.Its a dual booting PC with Win 98 (limited functionality) in drive C and XP pro (fully functional) in drive D.
Windows 98 is still essential for many computer users. Intel not supporting Win 98 in its 915 and higher chipset based mother boards is not totally justifiable. Anyway, is there any way to find appropriate drivers for Win 98 installation in a 915 based mobo. The installation has been completed but features like IDE devices,audio/video capability etc are not usable. Can some body help?
