windows protection error
Posted on 1999-11-18
System is amdK62-450, 32MbSDRAM, 2Gb HDD. Motherboard has onboard 4Mb AGP using system memory and onboard blaster sound. Board is model P5MVP4.
Win95b appears to install OK but on first restart fails with message "While initialising device IOS windows protection error, you need to restart your computer". Can get same message even starting in safe mode but sometimes able to start up in safe mode.
I've tried cdrom as both primary slave and secondary slave - same result.
Appreciate any help
When started in safe mode I navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENT CONTROLSET\SERVICES\VXD\IOS and delete the NOIDE key (refer win95 Q10186946) but still get the same error message and cannot fully start windows.
