Unofficial Service Pack Released For Windows 98 SE

/ 5 years ago


With all the press coverage regarding Windows 10, it’s very easy to forget Microsoft’s roots and how their operating systems evolved over time. Windows 98: Second Edition holds a lot of nostalgic memories due to its multi-user network configuration and extended peripheral support. Rather surprisingly, the OS never received an official Service Pack unlike Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8. However, an unofficial Service Pack has just been released which collects all of the Windows Updates and a number of minor tweaks. Here is a complete rundown of the installation process and changes:


  • Minimum 64 MB of RAM for Main Updates.
  • 160 MB free hard disk space for (ALL) options.

Installation Guide:

  1. Install Windows 98 Second Edition (with or without 98lite).*
  2. Install all drivers for your hardware.
  3. Install Internet Explorer (any version).*
  4. Install latest DirectX 9c.*
  5. Install latest Service Pack 3.x (Main Updates).*
  6. Install optional components of Service Pack 3.x.*
  7. Install MS Office.*
  8. Install KernelEx, 98SE2ME, Revolution Pack.*
    [* = Optional]

While technology moves forward at a rapid rate, it’s always vital to have a sense of history so future generations can understand how software and hardware developed over the years.
