The title says it all. I have Win 98 1st edition (complete version), Win 98 SE (on a Hewlett Packard "restore" disk along with tons of useless programs) and Win XP. Originally I installed XP over my restore disk but lost my DVD function. Someone recommended to format and start from scratch. So I pulled out the old Win 98 1st edition disk, loaded it and then did the upgrade with XP. During XP install I got an error message that said "Drive C is corrupted - setup cannot continue". So I went back to Win 98 1st edition, did a scan disk and defragged. That is where Im at. So this morning, a tech geek said that Win XP has a very difficult time loading over Win 98 1st edition (he alluded that you cannot do it). Is this true? Why would that be the case? Anyone heard of this before?
