This is a pre-beta build of Windows 98. This one is still labeled as Memphis and has many leftovers of Windows 95.
You need to set up a disk to use with Memphis. This build was known to not be bootable, so you'll need an external boot disk to partition and format the hard disk. You can use a Windows 95 boot disk, or a Windows 98(FE/SE) CD, but disable large disk compatibility in FDisk. In the next example I'll be using a Windows 98SE CD.
- Don't forget to set the BIOS date back.
- Boot from the Win98 CD until where it asks you to start setup or boot from the PC.
- Select to boot from the PC with CD-ROM compatibility.
- Go to the WIN98 directory.
- Open FDisk. When prompted to enable larger disk compatibility, type "N".
- Create one primary partition active.
- Reboot and repeat steps 1, 2 & 3.
- Type "format /q" (Without quotes) (When prompted about an unconditional format, type Y)
- After formatting and without rebooting, insert the Memphis 1353 CD.
- Go to the MEMPHIS directory.
- It's recommended that you run setup with the following parameters: /im /is /id
After that the installation is pretty straightforward.
- Accept the license agreement
- Click Next several times until you are presented with the "Setup type" screen.
- Select the components you want to install.
- You'll be asked for a blank floppy for a recovery disk, but it's optional. If you don't want to create it, just click Cancel when it asks you.
- Wait until the installation copies all files.
- Reboot when the installation finishes.
After this point it's almost like any other Windows 95 installation.
