It's possible that since it's pirated, something is wrong with it. Any number of things could have been done to it, so who knows. Anyway, pirating Windows is not good. Besides, of all the Windows OSs, why 98?
My guess was a virus that messed with the hardware, only reason I can think of right now. I can't format the HD I used for the jap win98 because it won't register when I boot with a win98 bootdisk. I choose 98 because of the hardware specs. If I can find out what piece of hardware it messed it then I've gotten somewhere.
