Win 98 on E71
Posted by Farhan on March 8, 2009 25 Comments Finally I managed to run Win 98 on Nokia E71 , the first person to run Win 3.1 on N95 was from Poland , now yours truly sitting in Pakistan has replicated the procedure to run Win 98 the procedure was very simple and took me 1 hour to research the basics and 10 min to install



to save you from looking around to find easier methods to install Ive created step by step instructions for you to install it easily . 1) Install all the files in the Dependencies Folder

2) install dosbox 3) install dosbox upgrade 4) Copy Win98.img to e:\dos\windows ( you have to make this directory yourself in the memory card ) 5) in C:\data copy mapper file and dosbox.conf files ( you have to make the directory in phone memory yourself ) 6) Run Dosbox and enjoy Win98

The running on Win98 takes time and you may feel that you are getting the Blue Screen of Death

Dont worry its just Win98 loading and will take about 1 2 min to load . If you phone is hacked , Win98 may not work as the memory is divided in the hacked phone and running memory is reduced , I had to hard reset my phone to run it the question is Ive run Win 98 now what to do with it , well the first thing this installation shows the computing power of Nokia E71 even Nokia e51 , equivalent to the early 2000s computers secondly programs may come to be used some images may be made , let me try some experiments and Ill inform you of the outcome . Ive uploaded the files in zip format at UPDATED Working Link : http://rapidshare.com/files/370580102/Windows98.rar ( April 2010) its a 85 mb download , the included mapper.txt will help you in defining the keymap to be used

Jason says: June 17, 2009 at 9:35 am What is the default key for pressing ENTER in your mapper? The Return key on the Nokia Keypad doesnt work, as well as pressing the middle button on the directional pad.

Leon says: March 28, 2010 at 10:10 am I know this is article is very old now, but could you reupload the .rar?

I'm trying to get Win98 working on the E63, which has basically exactly same hardware as E71.


Harland says: June 4, 2010 at 7:47 am hi. I have got a problem with the application. I installed it on my nokia E72. It reads untill the logo windows, but then it goes showing it is safe to turn off your computer, when I press any key, it says still, no changes. What could be the problem ?


Josh says: August 23, 2010 at 12:33 am Hey man. I put the Win98.img file in the right folders, but when I run DOSBox it says that it has to be ran from a local source. However, the Win98.img file is to big to fit on my phones memory. So I tried extracting it, and I got these two files, system and win. Shall I try putting these two files on the phone memory and changing the dos.conf? Thanks


Farhan says: August 24, 2010 at 8:24 pm If you are using e71 , its better if you run it on a clean install , I didnt checkout the extracted files so cant help you there

Josh says: August 25, 2010 at 2:11 am So Ive downloaded all of the files, I now have the dosbox.conf, mapper.txt, and the Win98.img. Please tell me what I am supposed to do with each file? I know E63 will run it because Ive seen it on YouTube


Josh says: August 28, 2010 at 6:35 pm UPDATE: I re-downloaded the file that you uploaded, and it does not include the mapper.txt and dosbox.conf that I need. Please can you upload these and give a link? Thanks

Josh says: August 28, 2010 at 6:38 pm Oh, and to answer Diegos question, if the font is to small, try going to Control Panel on the Windows 98 itself, see if that works
