Undocumented switch

By marel_ltd ·
Some time ago I needed to install Windows98 on a PC which the installation program insisted did not meet the minimum required processor speed. I overcame that by using an undocumented switch in "setup.exe". I now need to repeat what I did but I can't remember the switch!!
Can anyone refresh my memory?

Go to Bob Cerelli's Windows tip page:

http://www.onecomputerguy.com/install_tips.htm

The installation tips include a table of the un-documented switches.

I believe the switch you are looking for is /IS
Ignore Routine System check.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately Bob doesn't list the switch that I need. I'll just have to keep looking!
