On an old machine, the PSU died, and I attempted to change it. However, the power connector to the motherboard seems to be a weird 12 pin connector, and I can't seem to find any adapter with the typical 20/24 ones.
What can I do with these? I am not even sure those really are what I think they are.
The computer actually isn't mine; I am just trying to help out a friend. He has a proprietary software installed on it to maneuver a professional cutting machine, and it can't be installed on another machine. I thought about putting the hard drive in another computer and trying to boot from it, but I am afraid the difference in hardware would make the Windows 98 unable to work. I fear to make "permanent" damage on the system that would require tedious fixing afterwards.
Here is the motherboard connector slot :

And the "new" PSU's connector with 20 pins :
