Windows 98 running fine on wimo qemu
great news!!!

to get windows 98 full running on qemu Wimo:


~~~~~~~~~ just disable "mstask.exe" ~~~~~~~~~

Step by step: install a windows 98 c partition image on qemu on your windows desktop on comparing or emty qemu hardware setting. Copy on HD2 and try to boot. No Problem in save mode but in normal mode it freeses or crashes if desktop comes up. After 1000 trys to boot with difftrent settings in qemu and windows 98 guest there was a lukky error at desktop start: "could not load mstask.exe". But win98 startet complete and stable in normal mode. To get this error i had to try very bad and slow memory settings. But I just shot image down, renamed "mstask.exe" in Windows/System32 Folder and now it is runnin fast and stable on HD2 with every setting up to 240 MB Ram ;)
So now I disabled mstask.exe in msconfig/autostart and restore mstask.exe, if it will come up again with errors I will delete it for ever! It is just the "Windows's Task Scheduler service" and causes problems on many Win98 real hardware machines... So now I will try to get Photoshop 7 and 3DStudioMax running and report soon... And I will try 3DMark 99 and 03

Good luck all!! Hope you will find your old 98 CD and report. Or May be try same with win98SE or winME.

Will make a movie soon.

Someone find a way to get the toolbar bigger than the GEN-TOOLBAR size?

Someone knows how to edit settings in qemu android?

Lol this was my rabbit jumping on keyboard:
