I just purchased all new parts to build a system and cannot get windows 98 to install on it <it crashes during install> The config is:
Fic SDII Motherboard
AMD Athlon 600
Western Digital 15.3GB ATA/66 7200 RPM
HP 7200i CD-r
SB Live Value Sound Card
Voodoo2 Video addon <salvaged from last computer>
Viper V550 w/16MB AGP
Diamond Supra Express 56k modem
300W Power Supply
HI-Val Floppy <3.5>
128 Megs Ram
A Case :)
When I install Windows98 it crashes during the Hardware pickup <gives blue-screen> Then after continuation, it crashes again when it get to "Updating system Settings" where it gives me an error about the RegDllServer.dll <something close to that, it is the dll register server> Once I actually got inside windows, and it restarted because it had a problem with the registry and then rebuilt it. It seemed to work fine for about 2.5 seconds and then crashed all over again <blue screens, dllserver errors, misc. crap> and I think even on time msgsvr32.dll had a problem. After about 10 installs of win98, I even tried to install old win95 which appeared to work fine for a little while, and then it started having rundll32 errors and now will not even startup.
Anyone know what is up? Please tell me you do, because I have a 1200 dollar paperweight sitting under my desk...
Thanks in advance
