Windows 98 VESA Drivers

Postby Kegli » 29. Oct 2009, 16:10

Hi all,

I've recently tried to install Windows 98 SE on Virtualbox 3.0.8 as a guest running on Windows7. Installation is fine, but I'm unable to update the video drivers - I've seen the FAQs section and the numerous posts regarding some VESA drivers that were available. However, now Geocities is shutdown and scitechsoft has been swallowed up by another company, they are no longer available to download. Does anyone know where else I could find these drivers?

Your help is much appreciated!

Keg.

You're in luck. If you search a bit for Windows 98, and my user name, you should get a post where I attached the drivers. Shouldn't be much older than a month at most. Maybe two.
