OSR2 setup hangs after first reboot
Posted on 1997-09-10
Actually, I have one major problem. My cousin has i120 and CMOS battery
ran out. He changed battery, but after that he couldn't load Windows
except in safe mode. His Win instalation was bad anyway so we decided to
format HD (backed up imoratant data first) and install OSR2. BUT ....
After instalation procedure is finished Windows asks you to click finish
and to restart your comp... right? After that we'we got Starting Win95 for
message, but after major HD activity (10 sec uninterupted noise) Win just
blocks. ctrl+alt+del wont't help. I can restart Win in safe mode but
I can't restart them normaly.
I tried installing OSR2 4K, 32K cluster, Win95 (950 - normal) all the
same. Before this happened I instaled Win95 on his computer twice,
not OSR2 but they worked just fine.
I think he had specific BIOS setup, after it was lost, there's
something preventing some part (probably HD) from working normaly.
This is detail desc. of his machine:
