Nostalgia: Windows 98

Last weekend I tried to install Windows 98 on the oldest laptop of mine. It didn’t work, it gave an error, “Insufficient system memory”. Funny, I had 2GB of RAM…

Windows 98 Setup


Computer Type

After all, it is a laptop. Why doesn’t Windows XP ask these questions? Maybe it just knows.

Web TV for Windows

I wonder if it’s any better than Justin TV?

Dial-up Server

Dial-up server!!!

Country Selection

Time Remaining

23 minutes remaining, no, I mean, 14 minutes, no, I mean, 3 hours 27 minutes!


I miss this… Sort of, not really. It’s so much nicer to have it all shut down on its own.

I’ve got a video of it trying, and failing, to boot, however, bad quality, and not all that important.

    You must have under 2gb of ram for windows 98. Otherwise you would need a modification to a file. (it’s on the microsoft website)
