SUWIN error

I'm trying to reinstall Windows 95 over the top but keep getting an SUWIN error as soon as it starts to copy files. It gives me a GPF in SETUPX.DLL at 0021:09F1. I've SYS-ed the drive from a DOS 7 floppy but got the same error.

Any ideas?

I've since disabled both internal and external cache - it made no difference

Some BIOS's have the option to use slow speed. If so, try that.

Also, try just disabling the eternal cache and leaving the internal enabled.

If not, it sounds like you might need to fdisk the drive and then reformat it.

Check you DLL

Setupx.dll version 4.00.951 (date 12/02/97) Is it this one?? If it's not thisone then you have a older version and this can give that problem.

Gleasonguy - can you post as an answer so I can grade. I'd already reached the same conclusion myself :(
No Slow speed setting and tried different combinations of enabled cache and reserved memory settings - nothing helped.

The memory and the setupx.dll file are all ok. Memory was swapped out to prove this and the file is the correct version.

Have you decided to fdisk and reformat?
