On an FTP, i found a folder that was called Win98TE, the folder did not have an ISO but it had a bunch of files that probably needs to be turned into an ISO

i found it on ftp : // 95.31.192.4 /Public/ %D0%9E%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B7%D0%B0 /OS/ Windows%2098-2000 /98/

I thought was this a Windows 98 Third Edition :? , that is the only thing i can think of what TE Means

TE means Third Edition, probably.
But, the Windows 98 TE is a fake version of Windows, like Windows 99, and etc.

So far as I can tell, it's a Russian copy of Windows 98, with a setup answer file (go look that up if you don't know what that is), and probably a few hacks thrown in.

Image

Edit: Uploading these as I take them

Yes that's the Intel logo.
Image
No, I did not fill those fields out. Answer file, again. Product key et all was already pre-defined.

Pre-installs DirectX 8

Image

Windows Me themed LOGO*.SYS files. Clearly as a nod to the fact that some people teasingly call Windows Me "Windows 98 Third Edition". There's some other graphical hacks with XP Icons, and some new sound effects are added.

Image

For me, it only boots in safe mode. it's moody. The following additional software is included:

There's an alpha version of the Volkov Commander
Some version of ACDSee
A game called, "Digger"
another file manager called "FAR"
UltraEdit
"Shtirlitz" (which re-encodes between different Russian codepages.
Some version of WinAmp
Some version of WinRAR
Some Mahjongg game
another alternative notepad
"VTerm Version 1.0 Test Freeware Version" (named telnet.exe, as a replacement for the built in one)
TweakUI

That's all for now.

That was an astute observation. What gave it away? The fact that a third edition doesn't exist or the second post which says exactly what you said and a little more besides?

That's just a hack job that changes the version of setup.exe from 2222 to 2223. The properties window still shows 4.10.2222 A.

What's so awesome about a hacked build with some half random files squeezed in?

While you're at it, get Dreamweaver CS5, MJ's Thriller movie, Win2K RU RTM, Win95-Me serial, etc. for free!!! They are all on the same FTP; I dug around.

Because it's a nice hack, and I like hacked Windows versions.

Windows 98 TE is better than Windows 98 SE.

How can a hacked version of Windows 98 SE with some random apps mixed in be better than the real thing?

I agree, it cannot be real, there's no Third Edition or whatever.

Apparently, the copyright year shown in setup.txt is 2001, but, the boot screen shows 2000, because is just a photoshopped ME boot screen with the ME removed.

Windows 98 Third Edition is, simply, Windows Me, but this is the hack.
