Installation of Win9x/ME Requires a Primary Partition

The Windows 9x/ME boot files must (normally) be located in a primary partition on the first hard drive (HD0).  The bulk of the OS can be installed on any drive, including extended partition volumes.

Installation of the boot files to a non-primary partition is outside the scope of this article and should only be attempted by those skilled enough to not need this article.

For information on how to install Win9x/ME completely to another hard drive when using BootIt Bare Metal please see How to Completely Install Win9x/ME to an Alternate Hard Drive.
