i have a new setup containing the following a sba supermicro motherboard and a 450 intell pent iii 64mgs mem 100 mgz maxtor 13 gig hard drive atx mid tower case
I try to install win 98 after format and fdisk and i get to the point of adding the serial key to get it installed and i get the message i performed an illegal operation and the window closes out. If i try to install version 2 it will install fine and all drivers are installed but when i get to open a game or a press writer print shop it either locks up or i get the errormessage again.
i also have a ati all in wonder pro 16mgs pci video card. I uninstalled each piece of equipment and used a known good and working piece untill all that is left is the motherboard. still trhe same problem. any other ideas i could have missed or do you think the motherboard is the problem?
