Setup locks up detecting hardware.
Posted on 1998-06-11
I'm installing Windows 95 onto a 486sx system that was running Windows 3.11 for workgroups. During the hardware detect portion the computer locks up and has to be rebooted. I choose "safe" mode when prompted and it gets 1% further in the detect screen. Then I do it again. After hours of this, Windows 95 is installed. But when I check the performance tab for the system it tells me that my IDE drive is forcing windows into DOS compatibility mode, degrading performance. How do I fix this?
