I'm pretty sure that Windows 98 needed you to manually load the CDROM device driver. It was not plug and play. You would have the same problem if you installed W98 directly onto a computer instead of a virtual machine.

thank you for your reply. Installing was fine, using the cdrom, however I never had to change the cdrom. Only at boot, when I load any kind of ISO using -cdrom isofile.iso , it works

however changing cdrom during the run, is not seen or working is it a bug?

I found that the errror

the cdrom device has not been found is when you wanna change the disk/fda/cdrom

PHP Code:


5. Changing a floppy 
and a CD-ROM image

To change a floppy 
and a CD-ROM imageplease use QEMU MonitorTo see the Monitorpress Ctrl-Alt-2 keys togetherTo go back to the guest OSpress Ctrl-Alt-1 keys.

Please use slash instead of back slash in a QEMU Monitor.

For 
floppy,
(
qemuchange fda filename.img
or
(
qemuchange fda d:/tmp/yourfile.img

For CD-ROM,
(
qemueject cdrom
(qemuchange cdrom filename.iso
or
(
qemueject cdrom
(qemuchange cdrom d:/tmp/yourcdrom.iso
