  1. Hello I have a dual booting problem . I have Windows 98 in drive C and Windows XP in drive E. and there was nothing wrong to start these two operating systems for the last few years. A week before I notice that I am unable to boot my Windows 98 even though nothing special has done in the computer according to me. I can only get the Windows XP and not 98. When I gave the option to get Windows 98 in the boot loader menu it starts first and then the windows 98 screen comes and after that nothing happens except the blinking of all lights in the monitor. There was nothing wrong to start Windows XP professional in drive E. Please help me

    Start Windows 98 in Safe Mode
    Then go to Device Manager and remove your Video device (not monitor, the Video Card device)
    Restart your computer normally
    Select Windows 98 from the boot menu
    Did it work?
