I have an MSN companion and a 340MB IBM Microdrive plugged into a PCMCIA adapter on my win2k laptop. The usual utilities, ranish and dolly, do not work under win2k, and this is the only running OS I have (I do have Win98SE on CD though)
How can I get a running Win98 image on the Microdrive using Win2k? (The microdrive is not visible if I boot into DOS on the laptop.)
RE:Creating a bootable microdrive under win2k? (modified 0 times)
I asked the same question the other day.. A great suggestion put forward was to use vmware (http://www.vmware.com) to run Win98 inside Win2k. This means you don't have to do a Win98 install on a new drive (VMWare lets you run a virtual PC on the same hardware at the same time). They have a free 30 day trial version you can use. This will allow you to use ranish to set the drive bootable. Of course, this all couns on you having a copy of 98 to install in the first place.
Someone else mentioned another tool that would allow you to do it from Win2k.. Check out this thread: http://www.linux-hacker.net/cgi-bin/UltraBoard/UltraBoard.pl?Action=ShowPost&Board=MSNCompanion&Post=149
I haven't been able to locate the mentioned Dskprobe.exe tool, but maybe someone else knows where to find it.
