I think this should be your CPU problem, I have the same problem when I first build a PC using the AMDk6-2 500hz. The easiest way since your CPU still under warranty change it with another and try if the problem still pop up! It still doesn't matter if you already change your CPU and there still problem because at least you know that now it is really cause by your HD.
RIGHT?

I had the same problem, building PC's.  I'm not sure what the problem was, but after installing 98, on some systems we would get the error "something about being restricted.  After the error and reboot, the error would go away and no other problems after that.  We never did find out the cause.  Good Luck.

As far as I know, this *could* be a RAM failure.

The error I would get is something about a "child restriction" as I recall after installing 98. Rebooting seemed to alleviate the problem.  Then the system would work fine.  I'm intested if someone else has a seen and fixed the problem.  RAM could have something to do with it.

OK the error is pointing to the VMM32.VXD file which is a file thast is dynamically built by Windows installation.  You have three choices.  
1)  Clean install on formatted drive
2)  Delete the windows folder and reinstall
3)  rebuild the VMM32 file manually.  This requires some good knowledge of batch files and system files but if you want to give it a shot, I will give you the "how to".

Make sure you aren't overclocking - I bought a motherboard/CPU combo from a company that had always correctly set jumpers - then, one time, they didn't - my system saw the 433 celeron as a 600 MHz celeron on a 100 MHz Bus - After I fixed the jumpers and dropped it back to 433, windows installed and remained stable.

Have you been installing the update CD's for the motherboard?  I had similar trouble with my system, and I found out that the motherboard "IDE Update" and the "AGP Bus Update" were both older than win98, and when I installed without either, it worked fine.

If you are not able to get into the system i would take 1cells advice an format then install win98, I have also had problems with this vmm32 file. If i had my guess i would say windows has some bugs in this certin file.

1cellCommented:
morbiusx, though I appreciate your affirmation of my comments I want to give you some more info.  The VMM "file" is not really a file.  It's more like a directory in the fact that it contains many different virtual drivers and such and it's built dynamically when windows installs.  It's not actually copied from the install CD, it is built with variables depending on your hardware and configuration.  Thusly, you can't blame it on the file itself.  Normally this is a problem either with how the file was built or a piece of hardware on the system which is having problems.  In these situations, reinstalling clean is probably the best idea though there is a way to rebuild the file without it.

well i know what vmm consists of i do also know how it is built. i was simply agreeing with you. simply nameing it file for the sake of just doing so.lol

Well guys thanks a lot, the error still the same during win98 2nd edit. installation. The error appears when reach the final steps of installation
thats 'setting up hardware & finalizing setting'
Even when I success installed win98, some error still come out when installing hardware's driver???????????

is there one piece of hardware that seems to be starting this?

is this on a clean install?

mechwwwAuthor Commented:
I'm using a new clean hardisk on this new PC. The problem comes again when I install anything that need to restart the PC.
0
 
1cellCommented:
hmmm, try this.

remove all excess hardware before the install
sound card, modem, additional hard drives, anything except hard drive, vid card, cd-rom, memory, keybaord and mouse.

Now, format and reinstall
If the problem occurs after this it is most likely due to  a problem with one of those components or their drivers.  I would start chepaest first and replace keyboard and mouse but probably suspect memory.  Are all of these components brand new?

mechwwwAuthor Commented:
I'm sure it is not memory problem because I've try to use others memory on this PC. All the components are brand new except VGA card. However, I've change it with a new one and yet the problem still comes out.??
OK! I'll try the step-by-step hardware installation.
p/s : Thanks to 1cell, I'll increase the points if this works.........

I'm suspecting RAM or video card

Well I don't think so, because I've change using other RAM and video card and the problem still comes up (blue screen error during win98se setup)

What are the clues if problem cause by CPU ?
0
 
1cellCommented:
it's possible that it's the cpu but I don't know if it's likely.  I might first suspect the hard drive after RAM and video card but the options are really endless.  The only weird thing is that it's the same errors everytime.  The fact that it's VMM32 really points to RAM or hard drive.

I think it might be either cpu/hd. There are some diffrence error each time but most frequently this '0028:c0005338 vxd vmm(01) + 0004338 '
