How do I revert from Windows 2000 to 98?

  1. Recently a friend upgraded my secondary PC, an old Windows 98, to Windows 2000, but almost all of my old games no longer run in Windows 2000. Is there a way to revert to Windows 98 so I can play my old games properly?

    I have limited PC experience, so I need a full solution. I've searched on Google as well as this forum's old threads, but I can't find a 2000-specific solution. Please help.

    I seriously doubt you will be able to just "revert" as he most likely formatted the HDD. You just need a win98 disk from somewhere and do a fresh install.
