Here are some simple ways that can help you repair a windows 98 boot disk with a USB CD-ROM problem.
I’m trying to convince you to install Windows 98 on an old Dell Optiplex FX160 thin client that doesn’t have an optical drive. Since it doesn’t have one, I use a cheap Lite-On DS8ACSH optical generator in a USB case. Unfortunately, although Windows 98 Disc Wellingtons works fine, as soon as it tries to run the installer or enter a real command line while trying to load the CD driver (hardware not found), it crashes and I can’t continue.< /p>
Also, is there a way to get this trip to work in DOS so I can run a Windows 98 install?

How do I make a Windows 98 boot CD-ROM?
If you use Windows to create a Windows 98 floppy, you get all the data to boot your computer and CD-ROM support. To create a single Windows 98 boot disk, click Start, double-click Settings, click the Control Panel icon, Add/Remove Programs, click Install Disk, and create the disk.
I’m assuming that this system’s hard drive is currently visible from DOS.
If the hard drive was large enough, move/attach the hard drive to a system where this CD drive is temporarily available, and then try copying the finished windows 98 CD there.
Return the actual hard drive to the configuration you want to install, boot DOS from the USB and enter the prompt, drag the C: CD to then run Windows98-Setup.exe from the hard drive.
I don’t know, since setup.exe takes care of the drive where the files normally reside, assuming it’s the same drive that someone runs setup.exe from.
Can Windows 98 boot from CD?
If your system has been infected with a problematic infection or just littered with junk food that you want to get rid of, you can boot from the CD and reinstall the operating system. Booting from the Windows 98 recovery CD does not require special software knowledge; All you have to do is follow the instructions on the screen, I would say.
