I haven't tried to run Win98SE directly on an I7; at that point, I'm
usually running VirtualBox or another emulator, which allows me to
tailor the (virtual) hardware characteristics to what Windows wants.
Asrock seems to have quite a few motherboards that retain both a legacy
floppy connector as well as an ATA one, in addition to the usual SATA
and USB3 ones. I've had few problems with their Socket AM3+ boards.
However, only a single floppy drive is supported.
