STEP 1: Prepare a partition for the new Windows
It is necessary to install each version of Windows into a separate primary partition and to keep the partitions hidden from one other. This will require two primary partitions.
If you do not have two primary partitions or unallocated disk space for a second primary partition, it will be necessary to make an additional primary partition.
One easy way to accomplish this is to use the partitioning utility that comes with System Commander Deluxe or Partition Commander. This allows the resizing and creation of additional primary FAT partitions. An alternate way uses the SCDISK utility and the FDISK from DOS or Windows 95/98. Both methods are described below.
You can resize (shrink) your existing primary FAT partition and create a new primary partition for the second language installation of Windows 95/98. Use the manual partitioning function to accomplish this on drive 0 (your first drive). Once the new partition is created, continue the procedure with the section titled STEP 2: Hide Partitions from one other.
Note: You may also use Method 2 below, but Method 1 is faster and easier.)
STEP 2: Hide partitions from one other
Reboot the computer (Ctrl-Alt-Del). You will next hide the primary partitions from one other. Highlight the first Windows 95/98 operating system selection from the System Commander boot menu. Press Alt-S to get into the setup menu, highlight Local Special Options and press Enter and set primary partitions visible on drive 0 to NONE. Press Esc three times to return back to the System Commander OS Selection menu. Highlight the second choice (where you are going to install the second language version Windows 95/98) and repeat the process: Press Alt-S to get into the setup menu, highlight Local Special Options and press Enter and set primary partitions visible on drive 0 to NONE. Press Esc three times to exit back to the System Commander OS Selection menu.
Tip: If you press Alt-D at the OS Selection Menu it will display the drive and partition the each menu choice is booting to (for example 0-0, or 0-1)
STEP 3: Install your second language version of Windows 95/98
Boot into the new menu choice on the System Commander menu. It should display an error message "Non-System disk - Insert a boot diskette and press any key". Insert the Windows installation disk or boot disk and start your second language Windows 95/98 installation.
After installing the second language version of Windows 95/98, System Commander will no longer appear. In order to reinstall System Commander, reboot the computer with a Windows 95/98 or DOS boot floppy using one of the two methods below:
1 At the A prompt, insert the System Commander installation Disk 1. Run the
CHECKMBR utility: a:\> checkmbr
2 At this point you are done! Reboot and select either OS from the OS
selection menu. If System Commander does not appear, use Method 2
