    How are you creating the iso image in the first place? The iso image should be made from a full version not an upgrade version of the Windows 2000 SP4 install disc. You will also need a virtual CD/DVD utility like Virtual Clone Drive to "fool" the laptop in to thinking that is has a CD/DVD installed

    When I tried the iso image with a live cd-usb application.İt doesn't ask me to insert win98 cd.I prepare my flash thumb like that : I copy all files of iso to flash drive and make it bootable with WinSetupFromUsb

    I'll find a full version iso and try again
