i just found out that its possible 2 dual boot a pc. i already installed ubuntu, how do i put win98 back in if my cd drive says unable to mount?? my pc boots cdrom 1st but it still loads ubuntu...i want windows cause i eventually want xp so i can use my zune. windows is also easier to accept hardware,,my cdrom & usb's worked fine, but wen i partitioned & installed linux, it cant find my dvdrom, i cant install the software for my wifi usb stick that's linux compatible;therefore not detecting my wireless di-624 by dlink..
ok when the cd for widows 98 starts up it says:
Microsoft Windows 98 CD-ROM Startup Menu
1. Boot from Hard Disk
2. Boot from CD-ROM
Enter a choice: _ "
and then on the second menu it says:
"Microsoft Windows 98 Startup Menu
1. Start Windows 98 Setup from CD-ROM.
2. Start computer with CD-ROM support.
3. Start computer without CD-ROM support.
Enter a choice: _"
this should get you to setup
if you have any other problems post them i'm some what of a windows 98 expert
i hope this helps:)
P.s. You should partition your drive before you start the windows 98 disk cant partition it.
its a little tricky to setup dual boot when one installs Windows after Linux. Windows should be installed first.
you have fresh install of Ubuntu . i suggest you to delete Linux Partitions, install Windows, create free space and re-install Ubuntu. Ubuntu installer will setup dual boot itself.
damn im confused...i still dont kno how 2 partition
