Please help...I have a Sony VAIO PCV-R55DS Desktop computer. When I bring up Properties, it shows "Microsoft Windwos 98 Second Edition 4.10.222 A", but when I run my antivirus program, it displays " Master Boot Record matches template: standard Win95 OSR2.
Partition Boot Record matches template: standard MSWIN 4.1 FAT32."
My teacher has given me a training tutorial that requires MINIMUM of Windows 98 OS...it will not run; it returns a message stating that it will not run on Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 systems.
My warranty support period is long expired on the Sony, so I cannot call their tech line without paying just to find out why the Windows 98 SE system that I purchased from them appears not to be Windows 98 SE. The Sony came with a System Restore disk. I have many applications installed and do not want to spend days reinstalling all of them. I would like to maintain the system as is.
Question: Is this Windows 98 SE or not? What do I have to do to get my tutorial disk to see my OS as Windows 98 SE?? I have searched thru the site and could not find this answer.
Thanks for any help you can give...
