Q&A – I bought a Windows 98 CD online but it won’t boot.
A. Is this disc are burned CD or is it a legitimate Microsoft replicated CD?
If it’s a burned CD, I’d be pretty sceptical of it working. Still, in order for it to boot, you’ll need to go into your notebook/PC’s BIOS and set the boot drive priority order so that the CD drive is first. You’ll likely need the notebook manual to work out how to get into the BIOS as the settings are generally different for every computer.
Once you’ve made the change, save the settings and reboot. If it’s a legit Win98 CD, it should boot up.
