Win98 Upgrade stuck

Post by smpark12 » Fri Oct 04, 2019 11:11 pm

So I'm trying to do one of those upgrading every windows things (for my 100 subscriber special, not that it matters). I've gotten this far after a few issues, but when I try to upgrade to 98, It gets stuck on 20% when creating a startup disk. This happens whether I choose to create a startup disk or not, and there is no disk activity. I am using the WIndows 98 SE Retail Upgrade CD-ROM. If there's a different disk that will work better or any other solution, please tell me. Thank you!

You can use any cd of 98. If youre upgrading from 95 you can use retail full.
Oh holy moly just realised this is a year old

Can you share some more information regarding your setup?
What is the processor that you have and what kind of virtualization software are you using?
