Cannot re-install ebios.vxd?

Upgraded to a TX-Pro motherboard (AGP-100MHz, build in sound etc- for a K6-2 300)
Anyway - windows spotted new motherboard - tried to use its own drivers, and wouldn't get very far into bootup.
Runs in safe mode only.
Several reinstalls later (including disabling pretty much everything bar the HDD and motherboard + CD) its still doing it.
Two of those were clean installs.
The only thing in the bootlog.txt that failed was ebios.vxd (which I then installed out of the cab) but it still failed.
What am I doing wrong?
And more importantly, how do I fix it?
(Motherboard is unbranded, model code is M577)

Is there a CD or disk that came with the motherboard? If so, you may need to run a patch file for Win95 to work properly with the TX chipset.  Gigabyte motherboards have a CD with a file called Patch_95.  Yours may have something similar.  Run the patch file, which will then make Windows re-detect nearly everything in the system, and after a couple of re-boots, it should be running right.  You may find that you have to go, in Safe Mode, into the Device Manager and remove everything to force Windows to re-detect it all if you have no patch file. Hope this helps!

Driver disk, can't get far enough into boot process to install drivers (safe mode won't let me)

Anyhow - got it working now using a boot disk to fool it into thinking it was win98...

Thanks - BTW, it wasn't ebios, as many people say, that file is completely unimportant.
It was the UDMA IDE channels conflicting, as it didn;t pick them up properly, and was trying to use old ones with a new HDD.
