The Windows Hack

Starting The Hack Process:

Tools/Materials Needed:

  • Medium Size Phillips Screwdriver

  • Small flat screw driver (or chip puller)

  • At least 12" Standard 44-pin IDE cable (laptop IDE Cable)

  • Jumper

  • 2.5" Laptop HD

In addition to the above, you will need some way of loading the files onto the 2.5" hard drive. There are several options from here:

  • If you have a laptop with a floppy and CD-ROM drive, you can use it to copy the Windows setup files onto the hard drive. Simply put the new drive temporarily in the laptop, boot off a Windows 98 startup floppy, and use XCOPY /S E:\WIN98 C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS to copy the setup files onto the hard drive. (Assuming E: is your CD-ROM drive).

  • If you have a laptop that can't use the floppy and CD-ROM simultaneously, and your laptop came with a "restore CD", you can put the new drive in your laptop temporarily, boot off the restore CD and run a full restore. Chances are you'll wind up with a directory C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS containing a full setup image for Windows 95/98 or ME.

  • If you have only desktop PCs, you can buy adapters that will let you use a 2.5" IDE drive.
