Windows 98 setup problem...
Posted on 1998-11-13
OK. Here is my problem:
I try to install Windows 98 to absolutely blank, reformatted hard drive (C:). The installation goes surprisingly smooth. After it is finished copying all files, it restarts. Everythinig is OK so far. After it is restarted, it asks for serial number, then it initializes Driver Information Database, looks for any Plug-'n-Play devices "I may have". OK. After that, it restarts again, and here comes the trouble...
When it starts, at the last stage of startup, it locks up. Nothing works, i have to press restart button on the computer case. Next time, if i start in safe mode, it works. Windows starts normally, but it is the safe mode, i can't install anything! If i shutdown and restart again, it locks up again (in normal mode startup). It works every time i choose "Safe mode", but it freezes whenever i choose normal mode.
