You may be able to find the registration code for Scitech Display Driver 7 on Google.
Virtualbox does not have 3d acceleration support, and left to itself it doesn't even have basic video card drivers. You definitely could not play any games with its current configuration. There is a solution for it however. You can download the Scitech Display 7 Doctor software which gives you a proper vga driver. One that has more than 16 colors at 640 x 480. It can give you 32 bit colors, and a resolution of 1280 x 1024 which is enough for any non-3d accelerated game. VirtualBox isn't as demanding as PCEM which is a Dos/Windows 95/98 emulator. This would make it ideal for playing non-3d accelerated games.
Furthermore, Virtualbox Windows 98 has optical disk support, and this is better than Dosbox Windows 98. I still prefer the PCEM emulator even though it requires steep hardware requirements, because it can do more things than Dosbox Windows 98 or VirtualBox Windows 98.
You might be worried about the 21 day expiration date for Scitech Display Doctor 7 software, but the registration key and username is out there. Just Google it, I guarantee you will find it, but I couldn't put it on the video or I might get in trouble. Scitech Display Doctor 7 is a defunct company, the company doesn't have a website and it doesn't exist anymore. People did put it on Google drive and other places where you can download it.
Pros: Using Windows 98 on Virtual Box is fast.
Cons: Lack of driver support for 3d accelerators, lack of drivers for video cards, no CD audio sounds when playing games, and it is less stable than PCEM emulator.
