Ugrading a Toshiba laptop to Win98

By Blackcurrant ·
Hi

I have a Toshiba Satellite 220CS, running Win95. I have tried to upgrade it to Win98, but received a setup error message stating that the Toshiba Tools 95 was incompatible with Win98. I have been to the Toshiba website and have upgraded the BIOS and downloaded and installed the Toshiba tools for Windows 98.

However, upon rebooting after installing the tools, an error message appears in a DOS screen stating:

Assertion Failure (file Find.c, line 9999) "OpenMsg( psFilename ) == CCaok"
and when I try to upgrade the OS after this I get the same setup error message stating that the Toshiba tools for Windows 95 are incompatible with Win98.

Does anybody know what I need to do to install Win98 on this computer?

Many Thanks.

Hi,
I don't know what is Toshiba Tools 95/98 but if you think that you have all necessary drivers for this hardware to install Win98, you can try a fresh instalation of the Win98 using a boot diskette, with fdisk delete partition ...

Hi Florinel, thanks for answering. I am also wondering what the "tools" are. Even after installing the Tools for Win98, there is no option in Add/remove programs to uninstall. Also, there is no reference to the tools in the user manual. Anyway, I am trying to use a special upgrade edition of Win98, which requires Win95 etc, I did not want to have to go through the hassle of reinstalling a copy of Win95 (without the tools?), then upgrading to Win98.

Read about Toshiba Tools:

http://www.computers.toshiba.co.uk/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/faq.jsp?z=84&FID=00000005a2

As they say, I think that you can apply an upgrade kit.
"The user selects the preferred operating system the first time the system is powered on and the other operating system is deleted. The user is prompted to make a backup (onto floppy disks) of their chosen operating and the Toshiba Tools and Utilities via a disk creator program. To reload, the user manually installs the operating system from the disks created, followed by the Toshiba drivers and utilities"

Hi Florinel, thanks for answering again. As the Chas says below, the instructions for upgrading this laptop to Win98 are quite simple, and I don't want to incur the expense of 50 floppies.

This Toshiba link

http://www.csdsupport.toshiba.com/tais/csd/support/98upg/1004w98.shtml

Says you need to update the BIOS, and has 4 driver files for you to download.

As to the error that you are getting, it sounds like a bad download or installation.

I would Un-install the Toshiba tools from within W95, and go from there.

Remove the space between 98up and g/1004 from the pasted link.

Hi Chas, thanks for answering. This is the address where I got the download from. I have downloaded another copy of the file and tried to install that, but I get the same error message on boot-up and still cannot install Win98. I have also tried Toshiba's Ask Iris, and the MSKB, and google - all without success.

Can you boot into Windows 95 still?

If so, un-install Toshiba tools.

Install W98.

Install the W98 version of Toshiba tools after you have everything working properly.
