Need a Virtual Windows 98 running on a Windows XP machine
Posted on 2008-10-24
I have a legacy database on a Win 98 machine, maintained for compliance reasons. The hardware on the Win98 PC failed, and nobody seems to be able to find original software discs.
I am looking for a solution to
1. extract the image of that Win98 disc to a file, in a manner that will allow
2. a virtual machine to run that Win98 instance, an a as-needed-basis, on one of our regular Windows XP SP 2 machines.
- What software can I use to extract the Win 98 image?
- What image format should I use?
- What virtual machine software should I use?
