This old OS is tough on those that don't install it weekly.

Your first post and question has been answered.

Later you reveal what you are difficulty with but omit all relevant details. I don't ask for such details since the forum asks for them every time you make a post.

Here's my suggestion. Since your question was answered, you should post in the Windows 95/98 Forum about how to install Windows 98 on your hardware. Since you've revealed only the barest of details I hope your new post will be complete so others can see why you are having an issue.

I do see one and that installing Windows 98 after XP is not supported.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
