Failed to read Registry
Posted on 2000-03-13
Since I reinstalled my computer with Windows ’98 (German version), my system often brings the following error message “Konnte nicht auf Systemregistrierung zugreifen”, what means as much as “couldn’t read registry”, after booting. Every time that happens the system settings are set back to default after reboot.
I’ve tried to exchange the CPU and hdd and reinstalled the system, but that didn’t work.
Could there be a compatibilityproblem with my hardware?
Here’s what I’ve got:
Intel Pentium !!! 550MHz
Matrox Millennium G400, DH, MAX
SB-Live Platinum with Live Drive II
512 MB SD-RAM
Fast Trak DIE RAID Controller
2 x IBM Desktstar GXP 13,6 GB (on RAID)
1 x Maxtor Diamondmax 8,4 GB (contains OS)
the country and language settings are correct. The country is Switzerland & the language is German (Swiss). I’ve previously installed win98 from the same cd wihtout any problems.
The problems began after I made a dual boot with win98 and win 2000, but I’ve deleted win2000, repartitioned all my harddisks and formatted them. Now I’m only running win98, but the problems still there.
