Win98 Installation Problem
Posted on 2000-03-09
I am trying to install Windows98 to a second Harddrive. I have booted to dos using the startup disk, and the HD is Primary Master and my CDROM is Secondary Master. When running setup, everything goes fine until it gets to the bit mentioning that it is "copying files needed for startup". The machine hangs at this point (wierd characters displaying all over the screen).
It is the point when the Win98 CDROM starts copying files to my HD.
At first It was saying I didnt have an MSDOS partition on my HD, but it has started crashing after I installed one using FDISK.
So I am thinking its some kind of partitioning problem (I already have the drive partitioned into two).
