Win98 full grade refuses to install over Win95. HELP!
Posted on 2000-03-07
I am running Windows 95, version 4.00.950a. I purchased Windows 98, 2nd edition, OEM version from a friend who had installed Windows 2000. I tried to install Win98 but got this message: "Your computer already has an operating system installed, which cannot be upgraded by this version of Setup. You need to obtain the Windows 98 upgrade." What a crock! I thought that the full version would install over anything. I DO NOT want to have to reformat my HDD and reinstall everything. This is ridiculous!
Are there any switches to use with Setup that might bypass this? This is worth 1000 points to anyone who can tell me how to use this CD and install Windows 98 over my current Windows 95.
