Putting multiple operating systems on my laptop

#1
I have a couple of games that do not agree with 7 at all no matter what, and I would like to have multiple operating systems on here. How would I go about putting 98 on here?I have the disk and key. I want it to where I can choose which one I want. Thanks guys.

First you need a drive or partition to which you install it. Then it's just a case of running a custom/advanced install which allows you to select the target drive. Once your new op sys is installed you will be able to boot only the new system and will need a copy of the boot management program free from here:

Download EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

to help you manage the boot options menus.

YOU SHOULD BACK UP ANY IMPORTANT DATA AND ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THE MEANS TO RECOVER YOUR ORIGINAL SYSTEM IN CASE OF ANY SERIOUS FAILURE DURING YOU SYSTEM CHANGES.

I would first check if drivers exist for Windows 98 and your computer.

I would look into installing a virtual machine, then you could have 98 hell even DOS 5.0 and Dos 6.xx or xp and or all of them.
If you want 98 to me this is the way to go.
