upgrade Win98 to Win98SE

By cathig ·
I convinced my father to go with an external hard drive for backing up data because that oughtta be simple to help with from three time zones away. Alas, no.

He's still running Win98 and the new hard drive requires SE.

I've suggested he contact whoever he bought the computer from to see if they can help out. I've also e-mailed a link to the Windows Update website to him.

Can anyone predict if either suggestion will be effective? Or have you any other ideas of how to cheaply and legally upgrade from 98 to 98SE?

Microsoft has stopped nearly ALL support for W98.

Windows Update will NOT upgrade W98 to W98SE.

Your best option will be to search E-Bay for the W98 to W98 SE upgrade CD.

Looks like the upgrade CDs are going for around $40.

I went to Operating systems.
Then clicked on Windows.
Then searched on "98 upgrade"

Here are 3 auctions that showed up on the first page.

There will be at least 2 spaces in each pasted URL that you will need to remove before you will be taken to the correct page.

This URL should take you to the search results that I got.

Could you give me a link to one of the upgrades you mention from 98 to 98SE for $40? I can only find upgrades from 3.1 and 95 that go for $140. Thanks!
