Compaq still has the drivers for this machine on their website, it’s under “Software – System Management”. That doesn’t make sense. No need to mess round modifying CD images!
Display posts from previous: Unfortunately my knowledge on memory mapping is awful, so any help is really appreciated! Well then if that’s true then I retract my statement. These are the working drivers: The partition table is stored on the harddisk and your PC created a different incompatible one than your laptop expects Terrum wrote: But as long as any CD can boot and leaves you at a dos prompt, you can then remove that CD, insert the Win98 Cd and type setup, away you go!
While you have it plugged vd51 another PC, might as well dump the installers for all the programs you want and the drivers as well.

Then, take out the hdd and put it in another computer another laptop that cd15 see the cd drive, an usb dock connected to a modern pc, or whatevercopy the “win98” directory to the hdd.
The setup routine autoconfigures everything, so if a compatible driver is there you shouldn’t need to tweak a thing.

For some reason it only seems to boot onto it from the machine I installed it from. But unfortunately it seems to have adapted into a whole new issue now. Online though, I have found a set of drivers that have been verified to work with another laptop I tried the drive on, so I’m sure it would dox on this. This site hosts no abandonware. Page 1 of 1.

You do not need to install the bios settings functions ori its hidden partition as the settings will work from a booted Setup diskette.
It may be that the Setup diskette will check that you have the correct model and refuse to work, in which case it may need patching but that is beyond my capabilities. Otherwise, you can still at least format the C drive and make it bootable.
Didn’t know Compaq laptops had the same problems It creates a folder on your system and you just run setup from there after installation.
