You can use MKFLASH, I believe, but only the DOS version will be able to pull back a “dead” drive like this, so yes, I’m afraid you’ll need a floppy drive.
On a fairly modern computer USB memory stick will also do the trick to boot in pure doze and flash from there.
You need the XSF DOS flasher as mtkflash does not support the drive and its 2 MB firmware files.
WHat commands would be used for Windows 98 flash, as the dead drive was on a Xp 64 bit computer.The drive is not listed and when I hot swap them before I swapthe drives the good drive is listed in a single window after i swap I either get a four window XSF or a single window with Checksum 0000.
