Hi Michele!

For sure win98 setup didn´t like what your dd command made for cloning.

I did this many times, but always creating widows partitions and
formating them using win98 diskette and utilities like fdisk and format.

I am used to create partition,format and copy files using Xcopy or
laplink (better) and setup using win98 setup.

I suggest you to repartitioning and reformating.

But if Clive´s soluction is working, keep cool my friend.
